Newest Review: ... I was happy to see. The deal included a pre-show dinner and this was at the Raddison Edwardian Hampshire Hotel on the south side of Leicester Square. Nominally the meal was booked for 6.00pm, giving us an hour and a half. In fact we turned up at 5.30pm and they were happy to give us a table. The meal was actually very enjoyable and I would e more than happy to eat there again. We ... more

I haven't had a lot of success in the past with Red Letter Days. My wife bought me a driving day some years ago; it was rained off, after I had trekked all the way to Silverstone! This year she bought me a London show plus dinner; I checked out all of the shows they were offering (you don't get a free choice, only those for which they have obviously negotiated cheap tickets) but we had already seen almost all of them. I left a choice nearly too late: they only give you a certain amount of time before the deal expires. Eventually, just days before it would be too late I discovered that Thriller Live had been added to the list; this I was happy to see. ... Read the complete review

Thriller Live is a 3 hour long musical, dedicated to the one and only Michael Jackson and also, The Jackson 5. Due to my age, I have never been able to experience the magic of Michael Jackson live, so as soon as I heard that Thriller Live was coming to my hometown I just had to get online and reserve tickets. I was a little worried that this was going to be a show trying to make money out of Michael's untimely death and that the performing would be cheap and half hearted, especially compared to the man himself who was a true original. However I did read some excellent reviews online so I decided it would be worth seeing and I am so glad I did! The ... Read the complete review

I took my best friend to see Thriller a few months back for her birthday. We both love Michael Jackson and were looking forward to a day out in London. Thriller is currently running in the Lyric Theatre, although I think its ending at the end of January 2010 - but don't quote me on that! We knew that the show was going to be Michael Jackson songs but other then that, we weren't too sure of what to expect. We were also worried about poor impersonations and bad singing attempts, as MJ's voice was truly original. I booked the tickets for £24 each as this was all I could afford at the time, and I knew our seats wouldn't be the best, as prices went up as ... Read the complete review

Having heard about this show in London, i couldn't wait to get my tickets when it came to my area on tour. Thriller Live is a concert-style show that celebrates the work of legendary performer Michael Jackson. This musical anthology begins with Jackson's early years as a teen sensation with the Jackson 5 belting out ABC with his brothers and sisters and Stop! Those looking for history of Jackson's personal life should look elsewhere as this theatrical extravaganza is a breathtaking celebration of a musician whose work spans over three decades. Jackson's vocals are provided by six very different singers who all bring a certain magic to each instantly recognisable ... Read the complete review

Thriller Live is currently showing at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in London's West End, near Picadilly Circus and Leicester Squaretube stations. I grew up on Michael Jackson and am a huge fan and was lucky enough to catch a preview of this musical in January as my mum bought me and my brother's girlfriend tickets for Christmas. The musical previously toured the country a couple of times, before settling in the West End. Ticket Price: As with any London musical, ticket prices dpend on when you go and where you sit, however will typically range from £25 to £55. We sat in the stalls, however the theatre is not that big, so circle tickets wont ... Read the complete review
