We have seen nearly all the children's west end shows so far and will be seeing Aladdin this Thursday and can't wait! I have to say out of all the shows this one was my least favorite of them all, it was quite dull and boring if I'm honest we always sit in the stalls and have great seats however... More

I have been to see Matilda a few times now, each time with a different cast and I have never been disappointed. Matilda is spellbinding and hilarious from start to finish, the professionalism and talent from the young cast is astounding and every person on that stage gives it 150%. This is a show to be enjoyed by all members... More

Recently went to see this musical with friends and what can I say?? It was fantastic, the children in the show are so professional and are remarkable for the amount of lines and song words they have to remember. The adults of the show are also outstanding,especially the man who plays miss trunchball! We were sat on the back row... More

An excellent show well worth going to see. The second row of the dress circle are great seats and not that many stairs to get there and very easy to get out of into the Main Street. A show everyone should see at roast once.

Me and the wife watched this show on a Friday night July 2016. As it's a small venue it doesn't really matter where you sit. Good but not great.

Excellent and moving for this teacher-- it's about teaching with love. The young actors are so very good-- it's hard to believe their talent at that age. Set (made of books and alphabet) was very pretty.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
