It’s that time of the month again, and this post has 31 shows you should definitely have on your radar for March 2023!
Celebrating the diverse and wonderful venues, companies, and shows in the capital, our March picks should have something to appeal to all audiences.
1st – a revival of a classic musical in the West End? Try Oklahoma at the Wyndham’s. I’ll be doing a “show from the ‘cheap seats’ special on this later in the month.
2nd – a bit of devised theatre? Check out I Hate It Here by Sweet Beef Theatre at the Pleasance Downstairs.
4th – ever wanted to peek into the rehearsal room? Try Languageist at the Golden Goose Theatre on a quick hour’s turnaround. Choice of matinee or evening performance on Sat.
5th – a wild comedy cabaret? Time to catch Femme Fatales from The Lost Cabaret at Rosemary Branch Theatre. One night only!
7th – a brash reimagining of a Greek classic? Head to the National Theatre to watch Phaedra.
9th – head off to Chickenshed for their Spring season production of Rush, a generational story combining music, movement, and multimedia.
10th – in the mood for puppetry? The Duda Paiva Company are at the Coronet Theatre with Blind, a hallucinatory solo work, until 11 Mar.
13th – an interesting theatre experience? Head to Greenwich Theatre to see White Rabbit Red Rabbit. With a different performer each night, no director, and a sealed script on stage, anything can happen.
14th – Teddington Theatre Club open at the Hampton Hill Theatre in Mike Bartlett’s Bull, a razor-sharp look at office politics and playground bullying.
17th – rejoice in the return of cult musical Eugenius, now reworked for the Turbine Theatre. Go Eugene!
20th – catch bright new comic voices over at the Museum of Comedy’s Monday Club.
21st – check out Lucy Prebble’s The Effect at the Bridewell Theatre, a new production by resident company Sedos, part psychological thriller, part chemical romance.
23rd – Akram Khan and company takes inspiration from Frankenstein for their new dance show Creature, at Sadler’s Wells until 1 Apr
24th – head over to Ruislip to see High School Musical on stage at the Winston Churchill Theatre.
25th – an afternoon with music and naaration – Elégie: Rachmaninov – A Heart in Exile teams pianist Lucy Parham with actor Henry Goodman at the Wigmore Hall.
26th – recently granted a show extension, you might want to have a beer with Choir of Man at the Arts Theatre in a cheeky matinee.
27th – as Upstairs at the Gatehouse heads into a new era and management, check out Vodka With Stalin, a sell-out smash in Feb.
28th – as part of Sight Unseen, the first in the Takeover seasons at the King’s Head, you can see Mary Lacy Woz Queer, one of the pieces chosen by Isabel Adomakah Young.
