We came to see the Mouse trap and sat in the front row of the dress circle. The leg room was very cramped here but had a great, uninterrupted view of a stage so was worth it. If... read more

We finally got round to seeing 'The Mousetrap ' and we weren't disappointed! Amusing and like all good murder mysteries kept us guessing to the very end. The theatre itself was cramped and definitely not comfortable- which says a lot for the play, for it kept our minds off our discomfort!!

I went because its there, and I stayed because I paid. This is the essential guide to middle class pomposity and takes place in a theatre that would probably never be allowed to open in the modern era with stricter planning regs. The seats are dreadful (as a cast member would say). The view is decidely rotten (ditto) with a... More

We saw this show 30 years ago and had completely forgotten the plot. Many twists and turns, great humour and confusion abounds as you try to work out the killer. . Great acting and fast paced play. Worth every moment of watching. We sat in the stalls and had great views.

Was keen to see 'The Mousetrap' and was not disappointed. Great twist at the end! Enjoyed the performance enormously. The theatre is intimate with beautiful architectural features. However, the seats were probably the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in.No leg-room whatsoever and had to keep shifting position. Will get more expensive tickets next time.

Cosy theatre, well performed play, enjoyable and easy to follow. Perfect for my teenage daughter who doesn't enjoy excessive noise or movement on stage.

We visited St Martins theatre this evening to see Agatha Christies very long running show 'The Mousetrap'. This was a Christmas gift for my mum as she is a big fan and enjoys a murder mystery. The theatre is very old English and a small intimate place. We booked wheelchair friendly seats which were comfy and spacious. The staff at... More

Received The Mousetrap tickets for Christmas gift and was not disappointed. The St Martins theatre has history and tradition in abundance, which greatly compliments this fantastic show. A show that has been running for a very long time and it's easy to see why! Yes the seats may be not comfortable enough for those who are probably used to modern... More

Being a fan of Agatha Christie for half of my life, seeing The Mousetrap has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I finally had a chance to visit St Martin's Theatre last week, in the 64th year since it first started. Although I was familiar with the play itself, I was not sure what to expect... More
