The Mousetrap--still running after 55 years! Perhaps not one of the great classics of English theatre, but very well done and very entertaining.

I saw the Woman in Black 6 years ago - frightened the life out of me! Still good theatre though.

I minus it - old-fashioned unmitigated tosh.

Don't know if it's still playing (and if so, if it still has the same wonderful cast) but I saw Tom Stoppard's Rock and Roll last summer and give it my highest recommendation. It was the most brilliant bit of theater I've seen in a long time.

Gaslight will be on at the Old Vic near Waterloo Station. Maybe you've seen the 2 film versions?

If The 39 Steps is still playing, I highly recommend it - very fun, witty and entertaining.

I see that The Woman in Black is on the 2 for 1 offer list, "Get two top price tickets for £39, Mon-Thur evenings, Tues, Sat matinees. Exclusions may apply. Subject to change and availability." http://www.daysoutguide.co.uk . It is listed alphabetically with the T's just to confound tourists.

Betrayal at the Donmar is already sold out, but you can check if tickets are released.

39 Steps is strongly recommended as a a fun night.

St Joan will be in previews at the National

Right now I have tickets for:

Gaslight (suspense drama at Old Vic) and

Pain and Itch (a satire at Royal Court Theater) as both have ery strong casts.
