Best Musicals in London?

Hi, I'm staying in London now. And I'm looking for some recommendations on the Musical. I'll stay here only couple of days, so I have to choose only one musical this time. So any recommendation would be very appreciated.

I've watched 3 musicals during the last 3 days. The first one was 'Chicago' then 'We will Rock You', and tonight I saw 'Bombay Dreams'. Among them, I think 'Bombay Dreams' was the best, then 'We wil Rock you'.
Today I wanted to watch 'Lion King' or 'Mamma Mia' but both are sold out including tomorrow's. I saw 'Phantom of the Opera' last year which was my best favorite musical so far. Any recommendation except those four? ( Oh, I watched 'Les Miserable' but it was at Broadway not London.)

Thanks in advance.

I only saw 'My Fair Lady' which was quite nice. I heard 'Blues Brothers' is a must see..

Thanks for the reply. I heard that 'My Fair Lady' is good.
But I'm wondering to choose a musical which I've seen for a movie version. As for the Chicago, the film version was a lot better to me.
And I'm a big fan of Hepbun, so I'm afraid to be disappointed with the actress in the musical.

I'm sure there are many 'good' ones to see so its a pick of the hat!

- and indeed Bombay Dreams is great - it was my favorite..

Phantom of the Opera was amazing when I saw it there.

I've seen "Fame" and it was cool. I also saw another one but I forgot (is it possible it was "Boby Holly"?)

I'd like to see "Notre Dame de Paris" in England

Blood Brothers is a must I think, I also liked Saturday Night Fever.
I would like to see chicago, but I don't think it could possibly be better than the film.
Fame is a also very good.
I thought the Lion King was a little hyped.
Have you been to Harrods? Or Selfridges?

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
