“busy busy busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

such a busy area, can i suggest to anyone wanting theatre tickets - go to the theatre & ask if they have a seat or two before going to the ticket touts, its a lot cheaper. most shows have an odd seat or two here & there. watch out for pick pockets.

“Great selection of styles and experiences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

You only have to walk 15 minutes and you can be either taking in a great musical like Wicked or a classic play like War Horse to see the contrast that the West End and its great array of theatres can bring you. A must on any visit to London

“So much to see and contemplate seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

There's so much variety it's dazzling. I don't think there's anywhere in the world to compete with its variety and its quality

“Review on One man, two Governers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Received tickets to the show 'One man, two governors as Christmas present. Went to see matinee performance on Saturday 5th January 2012 without any prior knowledge of the cotent of the show. Delighted that it was a comedy as generally own choice of tickets would have been for a musical. The between scenes 'skiffle' group were excellent: the scene changes by 'porters' obvious but delightfully quirky. The slapstick in the restaurant in the 'Cricketers Arms' was side splittingly funny barely giving the audience time to recover before setting us all off again. The audience involvement which went awry caused more amusement than one would have felt possible as it completely befuddled the leading man to the point of going off script. Consequently the Ad-Lib section brought the house down. A very entertaining matinee performance which allowed us to go and ruminate over a wonderful meal in alocal Thai restaurant just down the street, rather than racing for the last train home after an evening performance. We have let it be known that this type of gift would be much looked forward to in the future!
