Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos8 MarchThe Serpentine Gallery’s new exhibition is by Rosemarie Trockel, and combines the artist’s works with objects and artworks created by others with which she feels an affinity. The idea is to create a world shaped by Trockel’s own empathies.

Roy Lichtenstein exhibition, at Tate Modern8 MarchThe new exhibition at Tate Modern is the first big retrospective of Roy Lichtenstein for more than twenty years, bringing together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures. Best-known for his comic strip-style and advertising imagery, the exhibition will showcase key paintings such as “Look Mickey 1961″ and his monumental “Artist’s Studio” series.

See the stars at Hampstead Observatory8 MarchHampstead Observatory is a small observatory with a six-inch refractor, housed inside a rotating dome, and it has one major advantage over its more famous brother in Greenwich — it allows the public to just turn up and see the stars for free. You don’t even have to book.

“The Audience”, with Helen Mirren8 MarchIn what is sure to be a highlight of the theatre year, Helen Mirren will be reprising her role as the Queen in Peter Morgan’s “The Audience”. For 60 years the Queen has been meeting each of her Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace. “The Audience” will imagine what a series of these pivotal meetings were like.

“Quartermaine’s Terms” — with Rowan Atkinson8 March“Quartermaine’s Terms” is a humorous play that follows the lives of seven teachers at an English language school. Chief of the bunch is John Quartermaine (Rowan Atkinson), a kind, agreeable, but utterly hopeless teacher, who is always available to listen to other people’s problems. But when a new Principal is appointed, Quartermaine’s future looks precarious…

Singin’ In The Rain! — Live in Concert8 MarchThe Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of “Singin’ in the Rain” by performing the film’s iconic soundtrack while the re-mastered film is played on a big screen. The glorious score includes songs like “Make ‘Em Laugh”, “Moses Supposes” and the classic title track “Singin’ In The Rain”.

This House — National Theatre8 MarchIt’s 1974, there’s a hung parliament, and the UK is facing an economic crisis. Set in the engine rooms of Parliament, “This House” strips away the gloss and reveals to us how politics works behind the scenes: the whips rolling up their sleeves, bending the rules to shepherd and coerce their MPs to vote.

“A Chorus Line”, at the London Palladium8 March“A Chorus Line” is coming to London… auditions are underway for a brand-new musical and it’s the chance of a lifetime… Based on a series of true stories, “A Chorus Line” uses song, drama and stunning choreography to tell the story of the auditionees, as they describe the events that have shaped their lives.

A Bigger Splash: Painting after Performance Art8 MarchThis exhibition will look at the relationship between performance and painting since 1950. Key works by the likes of Jackson Pollock and David Hockney will be used to show two different ways of approaching the canvas: one gestural, and the other theatrical.
