When most people think live plays they immediately think Broadway: the Great White Way. Maybe they even think off-Broadway if they are adventurous. But real theatre lovers – of musicals, dramas, fresh originals and truly timeless classics – London’s West End is, in this Theatrephile opinion anyway, where the best live action lives. And, yes Agatha’s Christie’s longest running play ever The Moustetrap is still booking in 2012.
Now there’s an app for lucky local London culture seekers, travellers and even those of us who just want to admire from afar. London Theatre is a universal, cross-platform mobile guide to The West End. It’s also a ticket agent for LastMinuteTheatreTickets.com. The app also has info and tix for special events and all sorts of cultural fare from opera to dance to concert listings.
For everyone the app offers news, lucid reviews and cast interviews from the website’s blog. For each theatre address users can even get GPS guidance – ideal for those planning on a New Year theatre junket across the pond.
