The area
Address
Neighborhood: Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

Ok getting a free upgraded seat put me in a good mood but my first visit here and it's a lovely theatre.
My seat great although only short so legroom not an issue for me. Most London theatres a bit tight on legroom
Magic goes wrong an excellent evenings entertainment.

Lovely theatre with fantastic staff . Prices were reasonable at the bar . Small theatre so get intimate. Toilets clean . We had to go through a bag check and the staff were polite and not intrusive even when they spotted all my medications in my bag which I appreciated

Really great experience at the theatre - well organised entry and exit. Horrible Histories was a brilliant show for the children, with the double layer for the grown ups. We all sighed from start to finish. Can’t wait for the next one!

We really enjoyed our visit with our 9 year old for his first trip to the theatre.

The Covid restrictions were well executed and made us feel safe. Staff were very welcoming and managed the security checks efficiently.

Great show, the theatre was not to big for small children and the show was fun. Kids really enjoyed the show from beginning to end.

I've been to this theatre many a time. Everybody's talking about Jamie is a great show. Every time I have gone to see it they have made changes to make it fresh and new. My main gripe is with the theatre. Drinks and everything is overpriced but that, sadly, seems to be common in west end theatres. Covid restrictions were done well (seats were actually distanced) but the mask rule wasn't enforced. To anyone with any kind of disability that impairs mobility or balance be warned the stairs are quite steep. I am usually alright with stairs but i definitely struggled with these so be warned. Maybe more railings could be put in to provide support.
Overall the show is 100% worth seeing but the theatre could do with some tweaks.

A great, typical story detailing the difficulties that one experiences when becoming a Drag queen.

Funny and whitty at times and a perfect setting. The theatre is one of the oldest but provides a comfortable setting in these difficult times.
