Such a cute theater. The stage itself was quite small but the production was wonderful. They did a great job with the sets and changes throughout the performance. Our seats were located in the lower level, view to the stage was perfect.
This is a delightful theater right in the heart of Piccadilly circus that we saw a comedy about a robbery. It was a little strange to be descending multiple slices stairs to get into the theater itself but once you get inside it's quite nice. lots of little sidebox seats and I would say almost all of the seating inside of it gave a good view of the performance. We sat on the bottom section in the middle row and had no obstructions. All of the staff were very pleasant and there were two bars available with alcohol. My only complaint would be that the programs were not free but that is a minor issue.
