Attended Potted Potter at the Grand Theatre with a friend who had never read Harry Potter books nor seen the movies. I thought the show was okay, but was certainly expecting more from the reviews I had read. The two fellows performing were certainly entertaining, and I realize it is a "parody", but it really wasn't very detailed. I realize... More

I went to see Ladies Foursome this year and really enjoyed it. The theatre is comfortable and beautiful, and the washrooms were clean. The staff are also very patient and nice.

We knew she was mature and impressive - but she is stunning today. We saw Dream a Little Dream, great voacls, tight production, and the London folks have so much class, sometimes the enthusiasm is muted. I thought it was an amazing day.

We have been subscribers for many years and have enjoyed most annual playbills even though there have been varying levels of excellence. If you go, don't expect to see this view of the interior because the photo that is included with this page on Tripadvisor was not taken of the inside of The Grand Theatre in London.

We go to the Grand on a regular basis and love it normally for the professionalism and standard of quality from it's performers that is offered to us. Last nights performance at the Grand Theater by the Elvis impersonator was at best poor. The poor performance did not live up to the Grands performance standards. There was no luster in... More

The tradition of this great theatre has been preserved with excellent additions to accommodate traffic flow and before show appetizers and drinks. The theatre is located in downtown London near buses and parking. There are many good restaurants nearby.

We typically see 2-3 shows per year at the Grand. They are always well performed. We've never had a bad seat ever....all seats are good. Our most recent show was Blue Suede Shoes and Roy was an amazing Elvis. Great vocals, dancing and overall, entertainment. We have tickets to see Shrek in December 2014 and we're looking forward to it.

Attended a tour during Doors Open London. I had a really good time learning about the history of the theater. I had the chance to see the different parts of the theater, including dressing room, back stage, resting room, places where props and clothes are made. I was also shown the collections of accessories, clothes and props. It is really... More

As a London native who was involved in theatre growing up I can say that The Grand is a definite must-see as a part of London's quaint culture. The line-up of shows range from classic plays to musicals to comedy show. The house itself if beautiful and seating is great regardless of where you sit. Originally a vaudeville house, The... More
