A round-up of West End shows that have been given Five Stars by London theatre critics.
Star ratings for London shows should be taken with a pinch of salt: with only 5 options to choose from, most London theatre critics invariably plump for something in the middle, with most shows getting three or four stars.
But given the fabulous volume of musicals and plays running in London at any one time, star ratings from professional theatre critics do help to narrow down the choices.
Shows awarded Five Stars are pretty rare, and so we have rounded up all Five Star shows that are currently available to book in London.
Note: The star rating given to this show is an average across multiple theatre critic star ratings. See “Read reviews” for the star ratings from individual critics and publications.
