“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.

Mughal India: Art, Culture and Empire8 MarchThe British Library has a magnificent collection of manuscripts and paintings by the Mughals. At their peak, the Mughals ruled from Kabul in modern-day Afghanistan to most of the South Asian subcontinent. This exhibition will document the entire historical period from the 16th to 19th centuries, through more than 200 exquisite objects.

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.

Barocci exhibition: Brilliance and Grace8 MarchThe National Gallery’s new Barocci exhibition, “Brilliant and Grace”, includes some masterpieces never before seen outside of Italy. A master of the human form, he fused charm and compositional harmony with an unparalleled sensitivity to colour. The exhibition will consist of 14 of his most spectacular altarpieces and four of his finest portraits.

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.

Rupert Everett as Oscar Wilde, in “The Judas Kiss”8 MarchRupert Everett will be starring as the great Oscar Wilde in David Hare’s “The Judas Kiss”. When Wilde’s masterpiece, “The Importance of Being Earnest”, was taking the West End by storm, his fate was already hurtling towards his eventual imprisonment. Forced to make a choice between his lover and his freedom, the ever-romantic Wilde embarked upon a course towards self-destruction.

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.

“Old Times”, with Kristin Scott Thomas8 MarchKristin Scott Thomas, Rufus Sewell and Lia Williams wil be starring in “Old Times” at the Harold Pinter Theatre. It tells the story of Kate, Deeley and Anna, reminiscing about their early years in London. But when their conflicting memories and sexual tensions bubble to the top, suddenly the past feels vividly real.

Brussels Philharmonic, at Cadogan Hall8 MarchJoin conductor Michel Tabachnik, pianist Markus Groh and the Brussels Philharmonic at Cadogan Hall, as they perform a selection of classical works by Beethoven, Bartok, Debussy and Ravel.
