Feature: Strictly Come Dancing does musicals

What shows can you still go and see?

Given that Strictly Come Dancing was dedicated to musicals this weekend, we thought what a great time to remind people that some of these shows can still be seen live at a theatre in the not-too-distant future. So why not treat yourself and get some tickets? Or maybe treat someone else to the gift of theatre this Christmas, after all, theatre tickets really are the greatest gift we can give.

Strictly Come Dancing – Live shows

All that glitter and sequins give you the need to see more? Well, there are three different ways you can get to see the show live. The Live Tour features a selection of celebrities and professional dancers, whilst The Professionals and The Power of Dance will bring the professionals to the fore. All three are touring in 2021 and 2022, grab tickets below.

What about the shows featured over the weekend then? Well, we’ve pulled out the ones that you can see for yourself below.

& Juliet

Wasn’t the opening set piece to Sunday night’s results show amazing? We already knew that, having given the stage show a full five stars when we saw it last year. You can see our review by clicking below.

If that has you eager to see the show for yourself, you are in luck, because & Juliet will be back in the West End from next March. Grab your tickets now from as little as £25.

Jamie Laing & Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

One show that is certainly making waves is Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. You can see our review from last year here.

Strictly viewers would have seen Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing and partner Karen performing a rather striking tango to the show’s title song. The show itself returns to the West End from 12 December at Apollo Theatre, and is currently booking through until March. You can snap up tickets from as little as £24.

Bill Bailey & Phantom of the Opera

Maybe you were mesmerised by Bill Bailey’s portrayal of the Phantom with his dance partner Oti? Well, Phantom of the Opera will be back in 2021 – we’re just waiting for dates to be confirmed. In the meantime, you can still see Bill Bailey’s stand up show, which is on for a handful of performances from 28 December at Lyceum Theatre. And if you live outside London, he already has dates booking for next December. Check the link below for details and locations.

Ranvir Singh & Waitress

One of our lovely team could tell you every line from this musical, but we promise, we won’t inflict that upon you unless you ask nicely. Whilst the show has shut up its counter in the West End, it will be touring the country in 2021. Strangely, you can only buy tickets for the Birmingham shows via Ticketmaster (from whom we receive a commission), but you can see all the other dates at the show’s official website.

Of course, what we really want to see here at ET is a revival of Little Shop of Horrors. Come on, admit it, we all want to see Audrey 2 come alive again in 2021.
