The theatre is one of the worse I have visited, uncomfortable seats, very little leg room. Feels like it's the theatre version of budget airlines. All the staff were great and very helpful. Cats is the worse show I have ever seen, no story line and a star in Beverley Knight who was only on for 10 mins. Songs repeated... More

I've been to a lot of West end shows and this I have to say bored me into yawning the whole way through. Pointless, strange story. The only good part was Beverley Knight who was phenomenal. She is the only reason why we stayed. I wish Grizabella had more of an appearance in the show instead of weirdness and pointlessness.... More

My wife and I watched the final show of Cats last night. The theatre itself was great and steeped in so much history. We were sat in row M of the stalls and our seats were surprisingly very comfortable, given the age of the theatre. The musical was very well choreographed and the music great. The only slight downside was... More

Lovely old theatre, very grand and the seats in the upper circle were not too bad. View of front of stage limited, but didn't spoil show. We saw Cats, my first time and, as its finished now, my last. Interesting show, great dancing, highlight was Beverley Knight booming out her song in second half....beautiful voice. Made the show for me.... More

Left during interval. Went to see Cats in October, room was far too warm and seats were so close together we couldn't even get comfortable. Just an absolute disaster. Will not go again.

Great choreography and actors.....but no substance until the very end. The first half has no plot or character development and just feels like a mess, the second half really takes off but is over before you know it

We saw the show between xmas and new year without the kids and really enjoyed the experience. The Palladium itself has been described as dated but we love that nostalgia and found the seating comfortable and the view excellent. We knew the show had no storyline but it was packed with athletic singers and dancers and the songs were brilliant.... More

You can say that the show is well rehearsed and performed by professionals, but it has no soul, no storyline and music is average (except Memories and Cavity). It just doesn't catch you. I expected much more from ALW musical, so much talked about. I think the tickets are a rip-off, we paid £90 per seat, as no other seats... More

Left during the interval, not much of a storyline to go by, cast were brilliant singers and dancers however it was hard to make sense of what was going on

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
