This still has the feel of an old theatre with cramped seating and logjams to get drinks and to get out, but there is a lovely atmosphere and the loos are impressive!

The theatre is beautiful but the punters are packed in like sardines. I literally didn’t have enough room to cross my legs. There’s no excuse for this as the theatre has been completely refurbished by the billionaire Cameron Mackintosh’s company and could have been made...More

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

I dont' know It is an old theatre. Used to be Billy Elliot there if you saw that. The tickets are almost impossible to buy so if you don't want them I would buy any ticket off you if it was not for the fact that the security... More
