Crazy for You
If you're a lover of classic musicals, then this could be the one for you. Crazy For You follows the story of Bobby Child, a wealthy New York banker harbouring secret dreams. When his mother sends him to foreclose on a theatre's mortgage, he falls in love with the owner's daughter and chaos ensues.
It's got all the elements a classic musical needs: a tale of love and redemption, lively dance numbers and songs by the Gershwins. Not only that, you can now save up to 60% on tickets. We're crazy for it.
Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical
There's only one word to describe Cruel Intentions: iconic. Ever since the movie first came out 25 years ago, it's achieved cult status thanks to its dark and intriguing plot (and Sarah Michelle Gellar, obviously). Now, you have the chance to get tickets for this production, running from 11th January 2024 until 14th April 2024, for 49% less.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong
If you're looking for a Christmas present with a difference, then you've found it. Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a Christmas caper following the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society (of The Play That Goes Wrong fame) as they attempt to stage a production of Peter Pan, despite malfunctioning props, missed cues and general chaos.
The production is running from 23rd November 2023 until 14th January 2024 at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie
Everybody's talking about this musical, and it's easy to see why. The infectious score is filled with instant musical theatre classics, not to mention the uplifting and heart-warming story. The musical tells the story of Jamie New, a 16-year-old student who decides to go to his school prom wearing a dress.
The musical is inspired by the BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, and you can catch it at the Peacock Theatre from 8th February 2024 until 23rd March 2024.
Guys and Dolls
Who doesn't love a classic musical? Packed full of hit songs like Luck Be a Lady and Adelaide's Lament, as well as lively characters such as Nathan Detroit and Miss Adelaide, Guys and Dolls is a firm favourite of any musical lover worth their salt.
This production at the Bridge Theatre has a more immersive element, allowing you to be fully swept up in the glitz and glamour of 1950s Manhattan and Havana all in one night. This Black Friday season you can snag tickets with a discount of up to 57%.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Now, £55 might seem expensive for a Black Friday deal, but after searching sites such as TodayTix, London Theatre Direct and the site we've included below, Headout, it looks like £55 is the going rate for tickets.
