The West End saw some huge shows arrive in March along with some delectable tours and some tantalising announcements. Check out what you've all been booking for this month.

10. Fiddler on the Roof

Playhouse Theatre, until 28 September

To life! Trevor Nunn's glorious, five-star staging of this classic musical has well and truly settled in the West End, with its leads Andy Nyman and Judy Kuhn wowing everyone all over again. It had a limited run in the small Menier Chocolate Factory, so this is a delightful second chance to bag a seat, which you've definitely taken advantage of.

Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell

9. Rosmersholm

Duke of York's Theatre, 24 April to 20 July

You'd struggle to find a better theatre team than the one that's on this. It includes Duncan Macmillan (adaptor), Ian Rickson (director), Hayley Atwell and Tom Burke and they should offer a very exciting re-imagining of a brilliant Ibsen classic. You all noticed that immediately when you heard the announcement and scrambled for the tickets.

8. Come From Away

Phoenix Theatre, until 14 September

It just won big at this year's Olivier Awards, taking home Best New Musical and you were all very sensible and booked tickets before that happened. Irene Sankoff and David Hein's musical is based on a very real story about a Newfoundland town that is unexpectedly inundated by thousands of people in need.

7. Only Fools and Horses

Theatre Royal Haymarket, until 31 August

It may seem an unlikely TV-to-stage adaptation, but Only Fools and Horses has been the talk of London town. The first month of the show has seen big ticket sales here on WhatsOnStage, which shows that it might be becoming a cult classic.

6. Waitress

Adelphi Theatre, until 19 October

This feelgood American musical opened at the beginning of the month and the reviews were scrumptious. Katharine McPhee also announced her final date in the show last week so there was even more of a reason to book a ticket. It's the perfect musical antidote to the madness all around us at the moment.

5. Everybody's Talking About Jamie

Apollo Theatre, booking until 25 January 2020

With the news that drag queen royalty will be taking over a role at Jamie, you all immediately headed out and grabbed tickets quick. Bianca Del Rio, who won RuPaul's Drag Race will star as Loco Chanelle/Hugo from 6 May to 29 June. We reckon she's made for the part.

4. The Rocky Horror Show (UK Tour)

Various venues, UK tour

Dammit Janet! Joanne Clifton looked radiant at the Olivier Awards this year, where she presented an award with her brother Kevin Clifton. You were all intent on catching her in slightly more saucy circumstances in this touring production of the old classic, however, which is, according to WhatsOnStage, rather great.

Jac Yarrow

3. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

London Palladium, 27 June to 8 September

The show's Joseph has been found and as a result, tickets are flying like proverbial hotcakes. Fresh drama school graduate Jac Yarrow is to take on the role, playing alongside Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan no less. The show is shaping up rather nicely.

Danny Mac and Dan Burton in White Christmas

2. White Christmas

Dominion Theatre, 15 November to 4 January

It's never too early for the C word and with the news that Danny Mac and Dan Burton are heading to the Dominion Theatre with this production you got your Christmas presents in early.

1. Jeremy Jordan Live in London

Cadogan Hall, 26, 27 and 28 October

When Jeremy Jordan announced he would be returning to London, you were all thrown into a frenzy. His four concerts were announced on 1 March and WhatsOnStage were here for all your ticketing needs.
