A critically acclaimed production of Othello, directed by Nicholas Hytner and starring Adrian Lester, plays out at the Olivier Theatre at the National as part of the venerated theatre's 50th anniversary season. Also on at the National this summer are The Amen Corner directed by Rufus Norris which tells the story of an uncompromising female pastor who finds that her congregation are turning against her, and Strange Interlude Eugene O'Neill's sweeping First World War drama in which Anne-Marie Duff stars.

Over at the National's exciting new temporary space, The Shed, is Mission Drift, a musical tale created by the New York ensemble The Team. There follows a new version of Romeo and Juliet for young audiences aged 8 years and over, The Grandfathers presented by the Bristol Old Vic Young Company, and The Hush which is part-gig, part-play and part-installation. The final show of the summer at The Shed, Home, tells the stories of the young Londoners through a mix of beatboxing and R&B and runs from 7th August right through to the end of the summer, ending on 7th September.

A hotly anticipated production of 'Indian Tempest' by the French theatre company Footsbarn, from 29th July to 3rd August 2013, is sure to be a highlight of Shakespeare's Globe's 2013 summer season. Performed in a replica of Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, catching a play at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre has become a much love tradition of spending summer in London and the 2013 programmer doesn't disappoint. There's a mix of Shakespearean classics from the romance of A Midsummer Night's Dream to the comedy of The Taming of the Shrew, starring an all-female cast. There's the great tragedy, Macbeth, and all three of the history plays of Henry VI.

In a first for the Globe, acclaimed English trumpet soloist Alison Balsom stars in Gabriel playing music by Purcell and Handel using the natural (valveless) trumpet which was the supreme musical instrument of the Restoration.

Added to these are plays celebrating new writing including Blue Stockings and The Lightning Child which continue on through to the autumnal months. September also sees the return of the Belarus Free Theatre with its performance of King Lear which was first seen here in 2012 as part of the ambitious Globe to Globe project. The theatre company - which is banned from performing in its home country - premieres its first English language production, Trash Cuisine, at The Young Vic this summer.

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is adapted for the stage by Simon Reade in the year the well loved romantic comedy celebrates its 200th anniversary. Filling the open air of Regent's Park with The Sound of Music, Rodger and Hammerstein's classic musical will provide the conclusion to this year's Open Air Theatre season. Continuing with their Shakespeare productions aimed at younger audiences, 'The Winter's Tale' is reimagined for everyone aged six and over. Also for young people aged three and above, the Dinosaur Zoo presents a live show of prehistoric creatures and gives audiences the chance to get up close and personal with the dino stars on the picnic lawn after the show.

London's Best Summer Musicals

 

The best musicals this month include Merrily We Roll Along which has transferred from the Menier Chocolate Factory to the Harold Pinter Theatre in London's West End for a 12 week limited season. While The Book of Mormon has been a hugely successful transfer from Broadway to the West End, The Royal Shakespeare Company's Matilda the Musical recently reversed that cultural exchange and has replicated its success in London on Broadway. Another Roald Dahl story which has undergone a musical makeover is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which comes to the West End under the directorship of Sam Mendes and is sure to be a sweet success, continues at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane throughout the summer.

The director of the Old Vic's summer play Sweet Bird of Youth, Marianne Elliott, recently won an Olivier Award for Best Director for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time at the National Theatre. And if that wasn't reason enough to see her latest play, the fact that Sex And The City actress Kim Cattrall stars in the title role might just convince you. Cattrall takes on the role of fading Hollywood legend Alexandra Del Lago in Tennessee Williams's novel in a production which forms part of Kevin Spacey's final season at the helm of the theatre. Cattrall has already proved her mettle on stage, last appearing in the West End in 2010 in Noel Coward's Private Lives, a production that subsequently transferred to Broadway. Charles Spencer, writing in The Telegraph, was reminded of, "the kind of woman Marilyn Monroe might have become had she lived a little longer...".

Noel Coward's comedy drama about a divorced couple who meet unexpectedly five years later has already been praised for its "wonderfully fresh, stylish and razor-sharp account" by The Independent who proclaimed it to be "the best Private Lives we have seen since Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan struck sparks off each other in the West End a decade ago".

This summer, Martin McDonagh's 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' is given its first major London revival since its premiere in 1996. Part of Michael Grandage's Noel Coward season - a season of five plays with over 100,000 tickets at 10 - the revival of this dark comedy will see Daniel Radcliffe take the lead role. If you want to see 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' at the Noel Coward Theatre this summer you can book tickets now . 'Cripple' Billy Claven is eager to broaden his horizons and escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of the small isle Inishmaan. After learning that a Hollywood film crew will be setting up camp on the neighbouring isle to create a documentary about life on the islands, Billy takes a chance and strives for a part in the film. Surprisingly, he succeeds and sets out to prove to everyone how much he wants to realise his dream.

Zoe Wanamaker (best known for the BBC's My Family and her role as Madame Hooch in the Harry Potter series) stars in David Leveaux's well received production of Passion Play, the celebrated dark comedy on love and infidelity by Peter Nichols. Find the best ticket priced tickets and book now to see this " beautifully judged production which does full justice to an ingenious modern classic" (Charles Spencer, The Telegraph).

Also at the Duke of York's this summer comes A Doll's House, which transfers to the Duke of York's Theatre in August following two successful runs at The Young Vic. The sell-out success from Simon Stephens - who also worked on the multi Olivier Award-winning A Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night Time - was widely praised, "warmly recommended" (The Telegraph) and nominated for three Evening Standard Awards back in 2012 and enjoyed another successful run earlier this year. Now, the "sexy, passionate interpretation" (Evening Standard) of Henrik Ibsen's 1879 play comes to the West End for a limited 12-week run. Controversial at the time, A Doll's House is acutely critical of 19th century marriage norms but, despite contrary beliefs, Ibsen insisted the play was not a fight for women's rights. This revival will see Hattie Morahan and Dominic Rowan return as the title roles Nora and Torvald.
