We loved the play, had a great view from the Stalls, although it would be good to have more leg room. However, our experience with the box office was not positive. We had booked a special package & I needed to know how to access...More

Never laughed so hard. This slap-stick comedy kept me in stitches from start to finish. It's so well done and the acting is superb. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys good old fashioned slap-stick. Lots of cool places to have dinner before the show...all...More

My birthday treat tonight. We walked out at the interval. Wish we could have left after 5 minutes. The Mousetrap was bad but this was dreadful. I thought it might be bad when they did some stupid bits with the audience before it started. Didn't...More

I have never reviewed anything like this before, but my experience compels me to do so. I truly can find nothing to commend this dire show whatsoever, except perhaps to a school group of 6 year-olds. My girlfriend and I kept exchanging glances every so...More

Hilarious show. We didn’t stop laughing and the preview of the forthcoming show ‘Magic Goes Wrong’ also looks very funny. Our 10 year old really enjoyed it but was possibly still a little young to fully appreciate the humour.

There is a searchline outside the theatre before the show, which can cause a hold-up, so arrive early.
