Way too many unanswered questions, way too many actions for which I didn't see a motivation. Why did the brother that didn't care have his grandfathers number tattooed on him? Why did the older brother like shallow woman? Why was grandmother (to use the language from the play) a b**** and what bearing did that have on the story? The... More

I wanted to see something other than a musical, so we went to see this play. The theatre is small and this turned out to be a drama. There was nothing really nice about it and it was not funny in the least. While I felt the acting was pretty good, the play was about a screwed up family (third... More

Bad Jews was absolutely fantastic, I saw it last weekend in the Saturday matinee. The script was wonderful but the four actors absolutely blew me away, especially Liam and Daphna. This is a must see production! If I lived in London I would see it again and again.

You enter the theatre though what looks like a Coffee Shop. Nice idea and very informal. A small theatre which can be quite intimate. The play (Bad Jews) was simply bad. A weak script bolstered by lots of swearing to try and create the atmosphere that was otherwise missing. The final punch is underplayed and it all felt rather amateurish.... More

If you want a real quality scare experience in a London theatre - go to Woman in Black. The tickets cost around the same money and they are worth every penny. Ghost Stories, on the other hand, is amateurish and apart from a few loud noises, not scary at all. Wish I could be more positive as it cost us... More

'Ghost Stories' is a rather unusual production. It takes the form of a lecture given by a paranormal investigator, with short dramatisations of his case studies. It's slightly tongue in cheek; all the scary bits left the audience breathless but also tittering a bit. I think it's deliberate - the show is meant to replicate the fairground attraction/freak show type... More

My partner and I went to see Ghost Stories last weekend. It was fun with a little bit of depth. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a little bit scary, a little bit fun and totally different to the usual theatre experience. Make sure you go to the toilet before the show because they won't... More

If you have seen woman in black and expect this to be equal you will be disapointed as WIB is very scary. I find shows like this and wicked ideal starter shows for people who have not seen anything else. instead of jumping to phantom and WIB Its simple. goto a theme park and go on the biggest ride first...

Read reviews,saw trailer saying 'don't tell anyone of your experiences'. Not surprised at all.If people had let on after what utter,self indulgent, crap it was it would've closed before it had opened. Shouldve flushed my 2 x £45 tickets down the khazi and cut out the middleman. Seen better effects at a school production.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
