It all depends on what you come to see, though the last play I saw here was dreadful. Called The Harvest, the most pointless piece of theatre I have seen in a long time. Soho is a very busy venue that combine plays, stand up and live music which attracts an array of audience. Always something going on here to... More

Affordable & great entertainment, cheaper than the West end theaters, & better; you get good seats it is medium small enough for everyone to see the plays and comedy shows. Staff is very friendly, easy to purchase on their website online

warning - most plays and events are only about an hour so the cheap price is probably not quite the bargain it looks like but that said, I would recommend as it is quality and doesn't take up the whole evening leaving time for drink and food and discussing the play/comedy!!! would recommend!!!

The upstairs area at the Soho Theatre is a really great venue for about 120 people. We saw the Opera-Up-Close production of 'Carmen' there last week - and were completely blown away. We really were up close and the power of those classically trained young singers was truly an unforgettable experience. You really felt part of the action and when... More

Attended a comedy play for one hour last night. The perverts. That was the name of play. Play was excellent. Theater staff were ver attentive. Drinks are reasonably priced and the vibe was out of this world. I will definately go back

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
