Dress code advice needed: London theatre scene.

Jump to last reply

We will be seeing two shows while in London this June:
Concert at St Martins in the Field
and
the musical "Dreamboats and Petticoats" at the Playhouse Theatre

We have just come from Las Vegas where we went to "Phantom of the Opera," at the Venetian. I wore slacks and a sport coat (no tie). DW was dressed nicely.
However, we saw all manner of dress. While there were a few like us, most were much more casual, including shorts, flipflops, t-shirts and baseball caps (oh, my!)
Of course this is Vegas, and we have not been to the theatre in SF or NY for some years - but are we that out of touch?
I don't relish lugging around slacks and a sport coat for our month in GB if I only wear it once or twice. But neither do I want to look like I'd just come from the beach.
(I promise not to wear a baseball cap my whole time in GB.)

Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.
