Saw this show in Woking. Had been told it would be fantastic but it surpassed my expectations. Even my 9 year old was gripped and thoroughly enjoyed it. Despite the very emotive subject matter, it wasn't overly upsetting and therefore remained enjoyable. Even some very...More

We splurged and bought really good seats for this show (although in retrospect, no seat in the theater would really be bad), and we loved the experience. There was a kids' school group there to see the show, as well, and they were a fun...More

Kinky boots if it is still on! Monty python if you know their work, great stage adaptation of the film. There are literally hundreds of plays to see, if you want great drama, war horse - unbelievable stage production. Enjoy!!
