Celebrate Galentine's Day with the girls in the West End
Who needs a Valentine when you can spend the day with your gals? Right now, the London theatre scene is brimming with shows perfect for a Galentine’s night out with the girls. Check out these empowering plays and musicals each with fierce women at the helm both on and offstage.
Right now there is no show on the West End more ideal for a girls night than Six, the story of six actual queens who proved they were influential AF without the man in their lives holding them back. Follow the musical mavens through their “historemix” as they rewrite the patriarchal past with songs about their achievements as female rulers of Britain.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a show with a more empowering message than a girl who reads so much her mind becomes capable of magic. This hilarious and touching musical comedy based on the much-loved children’s novel by Roald Dahl will have you and your friends both in tears and in stitches, and you can even bond over the catchy tunes that will be stuck in your head long after.
This feel-good staple of the West End is an obvious choice if you want a guaranteed joyful evening for you and your favourite “Dancing Queens.” The musical comedy favourite is wall-to-wall fun and cheer with the heartfelt relationship between a mother and daughter at its core. To top it off, you can enjoy live performances of all your favourite ABBA songs.
