Top 5 selling shows on WhatsOnStage this week

Find out what our hottest tickets are this week

1) Cinderella

London Palladium

What more could you want than legendary funnymen Paul O'Grady and Julian Clary on stage together? Oh, how about Natasha Barnes, whose star is rising so quickly since her stint in Funny Girl that NASA just released a statement about it.

Add to that the fact it's the first pantomime to be performed at the London Palladium in almost 30 years, and it's no wonder it's currently our biggest seller.

2) Dreamgirls

Savoy Theatre

Tickets for the West End premiere of Dreamgirls are hotter than a "Cadillac Car" on WhatsOnStage this week, perhaps in no small part due to Amber Riley's recent barnstorming performance on Graham Norton.

A sneak peek into the rehearsal room this week showed us that this is going to be a show you want to take the "Family" to.

3) Stepping Out

Vaudeville Theatre

This all-star cast opened at the Theatre Royal Bath this week, but it's the West End run that's had theatregoers tip-tapping to our ticket pages this week.

Join Amanda Holden, Tamzin Outhwaite, Sandra Marvin and more in this revival of Richard Harris' 1984 play.

4) The Wild Party

The Other Palace (formerly the St James)

Unless you've been living under a rock, you will have heard that Lord Lloyd Webber has bought the St James Theatre and is renaming it The Other Palace with hit machine producer Paul Taylor-Mills at the helm.

His opening gambit? Frances "original Eponine" Ruffelle in a brand new production of Michael John LaChiusa's The Wild Party. Tickets please!

5) Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Harold Pinter Theatre

You'd be forgiven for thinking Imelda Staunton's performance-of-the-decade in Gypsy would have earnt her a little hiatus.

But no, not only is Staunton due to appear in a revival of Sondheim's Follies at the Nash, but she's also starring alongside Game of Thrones' Conleth Hill in a revival of the late Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Phew, we're tired just thinking about it.
