Historical theatre

A guide to musicals and plays in London that are based on historical events.

History is fascinating, and theatre more than any other form of entertainment brings history and the past alive – right in front of the audience.

This extraordinary collection of shows provides tickets to both plays and musicals that are set in the past, and based on real-world history and events.

From Tudor and Elizabeth England in Six The Musical tickets at the Vaudeville Theatre, to blockbuster musical Hamilton about the American founding father, and more contemporary biographical musicals such as about the life of Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, and The Temptations.
