Saw "Bring up the Bodies" and thought it was wonderfully acted! I had just read the book so I followed quite easily but if you don't have a handle on the cast ahead of time you may get confused. The other play we saw was "1984" and I kept nodding off thru out the play - in fact the only... More

What a great area. Like Broadway in NYC, but with a British spin. So many old historic buildings, pubs, and people watching. You just feel really cool being a part of the scene.

It's sort of fun to walk around the area and people watch. It's such a lively area full of life and you meet some interesting characters! No trip to London is complete without seeing a West End show!

A day out in London wouldn't be complete without a pre theatre meal and a West End show. We went to see Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre in Soho. This show was magnificent. I was privileged to see o e if the very first productions over 22 years ago. This was equally as good if not better. We... More

Whether by day ( lots of restaurants and shops ) , or a night (we saw Mama Mia), this is a area of London with the energy of entertainment, the street noise of those looking for a show and the restaurants that cater to those who have just enough time to eat before a show, or sit back and enjoy...

This is a must see area when in London. If you get the chance you must go to at least one of the many shows that are on. Pre book your tickets if you are able.

Name it, it's playing here. From The Mouse Trap, Lion King, Wicked, Billy Elliot and War Horse to just about any play you can think of and so many more just hitting the streets. It's not Broadway...it's BETTER! So many choices, so little money. All close to great dining. And just a tube stop away from just about anywhere in... More

took a chance, didn't know anything about the show, saw a couple of favorable reviews.The play was wonderful, funny, a modern love story, the music makes you want to dance in your seat ! AND the jamming sessions they start with before the play "starts" is an incredible music experience. You can mingle onstage too - don't want to give... More
