During a trip to London, with a free evening to fill, we visited the Palace for a performance of 'The Commitments' after buying the tickets last thing at the kiosk in Leicester Square. In the middle of the dress circle, a perfect view. The staff were helpful, the seats clean and well maintained. The usual overpriced ice creams and bar... More

Had a great time, but do be aware there is NO leg room in the first row balcony. My two teen sons, at six feet each, were practically sitting with their knees up to their chins. I ended up with a sore ankle for days afterwards from trying to accommodate my feet in the cramped space. The show, The Commitments,... More

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
