Probably one of the most famous musicals on the planet, The Phantom of the Opera is set in Paris in the 1800s and follows the infamous phantom of the city’s opera house as he endeavours to transform his protegé into the leading lady, but of course he meets some problems along the way. Set to a magnificent score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a host of excellent special effects, The Phantom of the Opera is a long running musical, which you can catch at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End.
Hop in your Easirent hire car and head to the Apollo Theatre to watch Wicked, the award winning show which is based on Gregory Maguire’s novel of the same name. Uncovering the untold story behind the Witches of Oz, this musical will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions.

5. Billy Elliot
