TodayTix has exclusive access to front row tickets for the Savoy Theatre’s Dreamgirls, the smash hit musical that was translated to the big screen in 2006 with Beyonce in the lead role, which means winners are guaranteed to be right up close to the soulful action.Even if you don't win Lottery tickets, there are still great offers available on tickets for top West End shows like Wicked, Aladdin and The Lion King, as well as those at iconic venues including the Globe Theatre and the Young Vic.
Not in London, but feeding your wanderlust elsewhere?
