Loved this musical telling the story of the Kinks. Great music and lively show. Had seats in the gods so we were a long way from the action but we could still see everything.Seats were in need of some padding and were made for a time when people were much smaller! Luckily we are not big neither did we have... More

The West End theatre district is fantastic. Loads of wonderful venues to chose from to see plays/ shows. A bustling and busy area, it is full of shops and restaurants and places of interest. Great for nightlife. Highly recommended.

The funniest play I've ever seen! Arrive early as stage set-up is part of action with audience participation. Continues even through the interval. Well performed slapstick action, non stop laughs. Cost was only 20 pounds/ticket. Excellent choice if you love comedy and need a break from being a tourist for the evening.

While in London, I attended two musical shows in the area of Leicester Square and Piccadilly. I got good prices on tickets at the Leceister Square underground station at the Half-Price ticket booth. The queue was minimal and the staff was very helpful and friendly. One ticket was for a matinee for The Scottsboro Boys which was playing at the... More

The West End Theatre district is always pumping with movement... never a dull moment. People watching is part of the main attraction. Even if you don't have a desire to see any of the shows, be sure to visit during daylight hours as well as evening and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Brilliant show, loved the story line. The cast and music were outstanding, everybody was coming out saying what a brilliant show. Lovely to see true British talent, perhaps I will get my husband to more shows now, for him to think it great is praise indeed. I enjoyed this more than the Jersey Boys.

I knew I would love this as I am Kinks fan. I went with a friend who isn't a Kinks fan and she loved it too. It is so well acted, with great songs that help tell the story, and so much energy on stage from the actors and musicians. We went to the matinee performance and had seats on... More

Had a Wednesday afternoon to spare in London and went to the Box Office to book 2 Day Tickets (£15 each) for this show. We were given restricted seats in the Dress Circle (E15/E16) and had no problems. £15 well spent. The show was excellent, the music first class and it was a good story even if you had never... More

I thought this was a brilliant show and I dont do musicals. The actors and musicians were brilliant and I found the whole evening an amazing and enjoyable show. The story line is honest and probably happened to most groups of the day. The music is superb with all the Kinks songs added to great effect. But the most wonderful... More
