Was at Wicked on Saturday the 16th May 2015. The musical was excellent and the theatre is lovely. At interval Ladies toilets could not cope with demand and several would not flush.

The performance of Wicked was wonderful. I will go again I'm sure The staff in the theatre were very helpful and friendly My only grouse -only a little one- is that we had seats quite far back in the stalls and view of the stage was restricted a little

Any enjoyment you get from watching a show is all but cancelled out by how stifling and warm if becomes. More air flow required.

A strange mix of old fashioned and modern. Doors didn't open to bar area until 40 minutes before performance which was odd. Very warm in theatre to the point of being uncomfortable.

Went to see Wicked with my friend ( loved it) however the position of our seats (e2 &e3) meant we missed a lot of the show particularly if the cast were towards the right hand side of the stage. I imagine the same is true for the opposite side also. £28 for the 'cheap seats' is a bit much considering... More

I may be biased coming from aberdeen but I personally think that this is a beautiful theatre which attracts many of the top west end shows as well as local theatre. There is a restaurant joined onto the theatre where you can have a pre theatre meal or a cafe for a quick snack. It is very central and walkable... More
