This was an excellent evening of entertainment. Loved it! The set changes were superb! I wish the theatre inside was better signed. Hard to find where you're going. But apart from that, the Curve is an excellent venue. I have been lots of times in the 3 years I have lived here. Thank you all.

The Curve Theatre is amazing - I wish it was nearer to where I live or I would go all the time. Its got the relaxed and casual air of an arts theatre, but a truly stunning building and facilities and helpful staff. No stuffiness and bossiness as the West End theatres seem to have. The show was tremendous. I... More

The new Curve theatre did not have the same atmosphere as the Haymarket. There was a lack of scenery using the same main item with little pieces added for different scenes.
