Well this is quite a nice Theatre, but I am not keen on the unisex toilets. Basically they have just painted the doors differently and hence the ex-gents consists of just urinals with one stall. A bit of a waste of time really. Nice seats,...More

Stumbled upon the theatre close to our hotel in Hammersmith and this performance appealed. An old theatre encased in a concrete block, definite signs of life with a modern bar and restaurant, and a rooftop terrace for drinks. Theatre staff were friendly and efficient. Fatherland...More

Saw The Plough and the Stars here - absolutely wonderful production - wonderful action and great production and direction. Theatre itself is a little faded but I understand is about to undergo a major revamp this year. The bar and restaurant area is more modern...More

I write this to warn others, as the Lyric don't seem to care. I booked a box to see a show last year but the view was really bad (you had to lean over to see the whole stage). I emailed the Lyric twice, with...More

Disjointed and amateurish. Taking off your clothes and showing gay sex, trans playing Master of Ceremonies does not make you wild and deviant. Embarrassingly bad from beginning to end. An insult to the punk era. Misguided and what a wasted opportunity. So much political unrest...More

The show was good fun for kids and adults alike, although not immediately obvious to younger children as Jack and the Beanstalk, it was a success by the end. What I really liked though was the friendliness and patience of the staff, they were outstanding...More
