Came to the show not really knowing what to expect, managed to get half price tickets the day before from Leicester Square, paid a lot more than I would have done normally but not a lot of choice for a Sunday evening. Worth every penny, the show was buzzing from start to finish - the whole audience was on their... More

The matinee performance of The Commitments on Sat 27th June 2015. Fantastic performance from a hard working cast, who get the crowd to their feet and encourage them to join in. All the songs from the film are delivered with great enthusiasm and the banter with the crowd carries on right through the performance. The theatre is of the grand... More

Absolutely theatre and show ( we went the see The Commitments - highly recommended by the way) the theatre itself is beautiful inside, the staff friendly - the downside is the patrons who stuff themselves with food & drink and leave their litter covering the red carpets, shame on them!

After this start we couldn't fault the evening!! we had booked economy seats on the back row of the circle and on arrival were told our seats weren't available so we had been upgraded to the stalls - right in the centre and amazing view of the stage. The Commitments was great, really fast paced and lively show. The bar... More

We saw this show here, cant say I loved it. I love the tunes but just couldn't get into the show. At times I felt the stage was too full of actors and didn't know who to watch

Saw The Commitments there with super-cheap tickets we got from TKTS. We were up in the mezzanine. Seats were small and it was a bit cramped, but the view was good and the theatre itself was beautiful.

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.
