Thanks to Dan and Kabaret Kaos for bringing the Lipsinkers back to the Barbican Theatre - always a fun evening. Great sound and lighting effects, especially their version of Bohemian Rhapsody - what an encore. Also, thanks to Nieve and Jane, who did a great job running the busy bar that night, plus the Thai cooks who did a brilliant... More

The theatre is in the backstreets of the barbican . it is deceptive from the outside as the auditorium is quite large . the shows are fun and quite unique and a good price ! The xmas show is a particular favourite

We visit the show every Christmas with our family and wouldn't miss it for the world! It never fails to have us in tears with laughter and the cast have as much fun as the audience. Such a special show. We feel proud to support such amazing local talent.

Loved spending New Year's Eve at this great show - was the ideal entertainment (and we didn't even have any kids!). Thanks for making us crease-up!

Le Navet Bete are great, fresh, innovative young local talent, the actors even hang around afterwards in the bar for chat. My kids wanted to... More

We love watching La Navet Bete at this gorgeous and friendly theatre in a quaint part of Plymouth. It is a real treat for us to drive up from Exeter for an excellent show for all the family, guaranteed fun and laughter followed by a wonderful and authentic Thai meal afterwards. We loved The Wizard of Oz and are going... More

I brought along my parents for the first time to see this company, and they loved it. They can't wait for their next production, and we're the same too!

Great little theatre - a real hidden gem - staff are friendly, food is good value for money, and a fantastic range of entertainment from live music, dancing and theatre. I have visited with various friends and family over the past 3 years, but must go more often as it's always a brilliant night out!
