Booked Susan Calman which was in the basement room - its small and intimate with a bar and toilets on the same floor. A great venue and handy to the night life of Soho......bars and food. it has its own café/food available but we did not have time to sample. Ticket prices were very reasonable for central London. Do look... More

The soho theatre was quite surprisingly cosy and nice. It has a good bar with sofa's and normal chairs. Its got quite a lot of space but becomes packed out towards show time. Its a small theatre. The view was great actually as we managed to sit at the front with the table and I should imagine that you wouldn't... More

I saw Pyjama Men here which was surreal and very American but funny enough. The theatre itself is divided into an upstairs and a downstairs where they have two different things going on at the same time. The downstairs section is typically grungy, rough and ready in appearance with a small stage and ad hoc seating. Very intimate. The bar... More

Saw Josie Long's wonderful 'Cara Josephine' show - brilliant, funny, touching, endearing - at this fantastic, lively venue.

We visited the Soho theatre in mid-December and, despite the great choice of restaurants in and around the Soho area, we choose to eat at the theatre. We were not disappointed. We choose to have the succulent home-made burgers with chips, which were lovely and crispy! If you are visiting the theatre and want to make sure that you are... More

I was concerned about booking a standing ticket as thought it might be really annoying, cramped and with a bad view. Couldn't find any reviews anywhere so just bought it anyway as I really wanted to see Nina Conti (hilarious!) and the tickets were too cheap not too - £15 each. Standing Ticket was absolutely amazing - we were in... More

Almost on impulse I sought out this theatre as I have been recommended the evening performance of "Symphony" by Nabokov. It was a cosy little downstairs theatre with excellent sound, tables and chairs and a great performance. If you have a chance, see Symphony.

What an incredible discovery to find this excellent cosy theatre and bar in the heart of Soho. The location is ideal when visiting London's West End. My partner and I went to see a matinee performance of 'Wet House'. This incredible production about the fragility of the human condition had poignancy, depth and humour. The acting was superb, totally captivating... More

Great theatre, uncomfortable bench seating, but being closer to the actors a little bit of discomfort is soon forgotten. Saw Wet House and can highly recommend, a lot of strong language but you expect it with the theme of the play.

Three of us wanted to see a last minute show in central London on a Saturday night. All last minute tickets for West End shows were £50 or more so we decided to try out the Soho Theatre. We got last minute tickets for a two and half hour play, The Wet House, for £15 each. The theatre was intimate... More
