The Illusionists: Witness the Impossible

Until January 3, 2016

It's shaping up for a most magical Christmas in London's West End as The Illusionists come to town!With a limited holiday engagement at the Shaftesbury Theatre, the world's best-selling touring magic show is set to set sparks flying following their recent stint in New York. Starring Britain's Got Talent star Jamie Raven, he will be joined by an escapologist, a crazy inventor, a "deductionist" and most intriguingly, a warrior!

Motown - The Musical

February 11-October 22, 2016

Motown is the big Broadway musical which tells the story of America's greatest record label. With a book by founder Berry Gordy, this dazzling musical is bursting at the seams with iconic tracks from The Supremes, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and many more. A sensation when it opened on Broadway in 2013, Motown was nominated for four Tonys and spawned a North American tour which is still going to this day!

Located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of the West End, the Shaftesbury Theatre is the youngest theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. Bertie Crewe designed the theatre for brothers Walter and Frederick Melville. Since 1984, the Theatre of Comedy Company has owned the venue. In 2006 the theatre underwent a large-scale refurbishment on the interior of the auditorium, and it has hosted several revivals of musicals since its re-opening.
