Top eight shows to see in Sheffield this March

Unless you are giving up going to shows for Lent, we can guarantee there is something for everybody in the list, whether you love live music, comedy, musicals or comedy musicals. As always the list is in date order.

42nd Street – 11 to 14 March, Montgomery Theatre

Not performed in Sheffield for over a decade, this is your opportunity to catch this classic old school Hollywood musical on stage featuring stunning song and dance routines to the likes of “We’re in the Money” and “Lullaby of Broadway”.

Tom Rosenthal: Manhood – 13 March, Leadmill

The perfect night of the week to catch this previous winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, though as all fans of the Channel 4 sitcom will know it would only be made more perfect if an evening meal was thrown in. Please note that tickets were limited at the time of typing this so don’t miss out. For further information and to book visit www.leadmill.co.uk/event/tom-rosenthal

Alexei Sayle – 17 & 18 March, Sheffield City Hall

My Christmas present from my boyfriend, this master of stand up, with 40 years of the art form under his Scouse belt, is on tour for the first time in seven years. Whether you have seen and loved him on stage before, think his role as the Balowski family in The Young Ones is comedy gold, or both, this should not be missed.

Heaven 17 – 19 March, Sheffield City Hall

We won’t go into the history of the two bands now, but this show will be a “Temptation” for fans of the steel city bands “Heaven 17” and “The Human League” alike as Heaven 17 celebrate the 40th anniversary of the albums “Reproduction” and “Travelogue” by performing them together for two shows only live for the first time.

Divine Invention – 19 to 21 March, The Holt

Mage Plays has a growing reputation in Sheffield for original and hilarious comedic plays and this one looks like it will only help to grow it as it follows the story of two angels and their gloriously comedic utterly divine interference in a man’s life.

The Trials of Cato – 20 March, The Greystones

We were lucky enough to catch this Welsh/Yorkshire hybrid folk trio at an intimate gig before they won their BBC 2 Folk Award for Best Album so are delighted they are coming to Sheffield, even forgiving them for still owing this website an interview (don’t worry we know you’ve been busy).

Game of Thrones: The Spoof Musical – 20 & 21 March, Theatre Deli

Whether you are still having withdrawal symptoms, thought the HBO series was lacking enough laughs, disagreed with the ending or caught the company’s previous spoof musical about the caped crusader, this original and hilarious show should not be missed.

Funny Girl – 31 March to 4 April, Lyceum Theatre

This production might not feature Barbara Streisand or Sheridan Smith in the lead role as real life Broadway star Fanny Brice but as this company has a reputation for bringing professional quality musicals to the Lyceum stage you know there will be someone amazing at its’ helm giving incredible vocal and emotional performances of the likes of “Don’t Rain On My Parade”.
