How have musicals evolved over time?
The history of musicals in London is a long and rich one, dating back to the early days of the city's theatre scene. The first musicals in London were probably those that were performed in the city's inns and taverns, which were popular entertainment venues in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. These early musicals were often quite bawdy and featured crude humor and sexually suggestive lyrics. As London's city theatre scene grew and developed, so did its musicals.
How expensive are London musicals?
There is no definitive answer to this question as the cost of London musicals can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. The price of a ticket in London will usually depend on the popularity of the show, the venue, the time of year and the day of the week - and whether it is a new musical.
