We saw The Commitments here in the first weekend of November. The fabulous red brick theater built in the 1880’s is filled with beautiful period details which hint at it’s beginning as London’s Royal Grand Opera House. The interior plaster work and wall details, especially the ceilings are quite amazing and shine after a restoration 1989 for the exterior and... More

I was recently in London on a holiday weekend and looking for a theater ticket last minute. Went to TKTS Leicester Square and they had only 3 shows. I hadn't heard much about The Commitments but took a chance. What a great surprise! The music is such fun, soul hits from the 60's and 70's. The actors/singers are amazing, and... More

Brilliant show, superb cast and what singing. Theatre a little cramped but the show is amazing. The theatre needs a re vamp as seats have very little leg room.

I saw The Producers a few years back while I was in London. The show itself was very entertaining and the theater was excellent and affordable.

We stayed in a place in Soho and wanted to see a show. We were able to get discounted tickets (which is really the main reason we went to this show). The show was really good. Music was great, performers were top notch. The chairs were uncomfortably small, but this is an older theatre , so it's expected. Staff were... More

Years ago we saw "The Commitments" movie and loved it because of the music so we were anxious to see the play and go to the Palace Theater. The theater has comfortable seating and good acoustics which made hearing songs like "Mustang Sally'' fantastic. The audience was engaged clapping to the beat and singing along at the finale. What I... More

This venue is easily accessible and surrounded by bars, other theatres, pubs and restaurants giving the whole area a buzzing feel. We were sat high up but the view was still very good (best £10 we've spent I think!) The show itself was fantastic, great sound great entertainment. Even the alcohol was almost reasonably priced. Almost.
