Nice food - but not enough staff on the day we had lunch there. Not staff fault, just not prepared for influx of lunchtime diners.

Warm, fun and always welcoming. Great seating, perfect sound and child friendly. There are so many wonderful shows to choose from. Take the family or just a couple of friends and enjoy a little inner city culture.

We sat in the "on stage" seats - a nice experience looking out across the stage to the audience! Good perfromances - as I remember it from London back in the 80's/90's although the performers dont come out into the audience.

Lost in the fairy tale world. All actors were world class. Toby Cronjé absolutely stellar... A show one should see more than once. The creativity and wit of Janice Honeyman is... More
