I have now been twice, once to a one woman show lasting 90 minutes and once to the Duchess of Malfi which was over 2.5 hours.
The theatre looks lovely and smells of wood. But the experience is spoiled by insanely uncomfortable seating. You are on benches with no backs unless you are in the back row. You are squished next to your neighbour, and have no place to put coats or bags.
The people behind you kick you every time they move their feet because the space is so poor.
If you sit level with the stage you will find your view blocked by actors. The candlelight seems cute but sucks oxygen out of the atmosphere. The upper levels can only see half the stage and that through the candelabra. The pit seats force you to crane your neck up to see the actors.
All in all this is definitely one for people who like to be tortured for their art. Despite two decent productions, I won't be going back. The problems aren't likely to be easily fixed. Even bringing your own cushion doesn't help. We tried.
