London shows for family

We're heading for London with our 2 daughters, ages 13 and 16. We would appreciate recommendations on current shows --especially musicals that are well done and age appropriate. We're not looking for children's shows, but those with plot lines that don't violate our moral values. e.g. We enjoyed Les Miserables a while back.

I would recommend Mamma Mia, which features the music of the former Swedish group, ABBA. Check out a synopsis online to see if the plot line violates your values; that's very individual, obviously.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is great for kids of all ages (including adults) well maybe not teens but my son and daughter loved it and they're the same age as your daughters.

Also for historic perspectives, my kids really loved Les Mis but I understand that some might find it boring but there are characters of all ages in the show.

I would second Mamma Mia...but there are some parts of the story line that are definitely adult so I agree with grandmere to check it out, or ask someone with your similiar moral values if they think the show would be age appropriate. I always enjoy the Reduced Shakespeare Company, as far as I can remember it is pretty family safe.

Our kids (12 AND 15) really enjoyed MAMA MIA, and the London production of MY FAIR LADY, which was out of this world, but I think it may have closed.
