  In front of Albery Theatre on St. Martin's Lane

While in London we saw two live performances, the musical "Bombay Dreams" (on the second to last night before it went on the road) and Tennessee Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer" with Diana Rigg in one of the lead roles.
Both were excellent, and now that I'm back home and looking back I wish we'd gone to more theatre -- a Shakespeare play or any of numerous other productions. As I recall we had a hard time deciding, so we should have just gone more than twice.
We were staying in the middle of the theatre district, after all, and could probably have picked up last minute tickets easily.
I think we paid a higher than necessary price for our seats, since we got them through the hotel (50 pounds each per production), but in retrospect they were well worth it.
Go to the theatre while you are in London!!
