Good points: Large easy to get to theatre. Had hint of air conditioning when we went is on a hot day. Sunday opening, matinee and evening. Saw The Commitments July 2015. Excellent show. Bad Points: The seats are ridiculously narrow. Cast iron as well so no adjustment possible. I was warned about this beforehand. Seats in old British theatres are... More

Show was excellent and music too. The acoustics were spot on and at end everyone was out of their seats dancing. I am not normally a fan of musicals but this worked.

Went here last November and again last week to see The Commitments! Firstly, the show is brilliant! Singing, foot tapping and laughing the whole way through! It's a must see if you like that type of thing! Secondly, the theatre itself! It's a lovely place, just what you'd expect of an old London theatre! Gives you that real feeling you... More

As they were not opening the balcony where our seats were booked we were upgraded to the stalls. however the damper on the evening was the very very expensive bar. We ordered a small glass of rose and a... More

Went to see the Commitments. What a foot tapping and also funny show!. Terrific music had you foot tapping right through it. You might need sun glasses in some parts. It's a sort of Mrs Browns Boys meets Motown!

I will start of first by saying that the show was AMAZING! Couldn't really remember the movie but the musical was a laugh out loud!!! Brilliant performance all round even when the understudy for Deco had to come on during the second half... The theatre not so much... We booked 'nose bleed seats' i.e. balcony for £15 for a Friday...

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.
