  • A fantastic ornate auditorium. Smaller than some and all the better for it. Excellent views afforded from almost everywhere in the theatre. Good range of drinks and snacks at prices you would expect for a theatre. The actual performance of Les Miserables was outstanding from start to finish. Back drops good, songs were delivered brilliantly from the outset. True emotion was transferred to the audience. A well deserved standing ovation for all at the end.
  • An easy walk from Covent garden. I saw Les Miserables and loved it. The performance was sensational, acoustics were great and the stage and set design was very impressive. As far as theatres go, this one is a bit small but comfortable. We had a lovely evening and everyone gave a standing ovation at the end!
