We came here to watch another Musical Wicked this time. There are local Productions held as well most times. It's not as big as the Asia expo. There is a coffee corner for us to grab a cup of coffee and a quick bite too.

Saw the latest RSC version of the history plays here last March. It's a well-managed professional theater that can seat around 1,000 viewers. Easy to find in Wan Chai.
