What a beautiful theatre! It is old and full of character and charm, which all adds to the atmosphere. It's also about 5 minute walk from Piccadilly. Circus underground so very easy to get to and there are loads of restaurants around here too for a pre theatre meal.
We saw Phantom of the Opera and were blown away by every aspect of it. The set is stunning and in parts almost like a work of art. The actors and actresses are phenomenal and some parts of the performance send shivers down your spine, particularly those that take place on the Phantoms lake. The acting is probably the best I have ever seen. The story itself is really captivating and is performed and directed so well that even if you are not familiar with the story before you see it, you will have not problems following it.
We sat in the balcony on row B and the views were very very slightly restricted but we only paid £33 a ticket (from encore tickets!) so definitely can't complain. Leg room was very minimal though so would recommend anyone who is fairly tall or people who like more space to look at the stalls instead and they have far more leg room and can often be found at fairly reasonable prices too. However, wherever you sit, Phantom of the Opera is not to be missed!
