    Accessibility support was excellent
    Beautiful theatre. I broke my ankle a week before the performance and was nervous about how I would get around the theatre. I didn’t need to worry. A huge thank you to Lazlo to looking after me (and my scooter). What terrific service! Lazlo was so thoughtful and made sure I was ok before the performance, in the interval and after the show. Limited mobility is stressful but the Noel coward theatre took a lot of the stress away.

    Great theatre
    Fabulous theatre and amazing show! Went to see The Ocean at the End of the Lane, based on a Neil Gaiman book. The show was so well staged that I can thoroughly recommend it. The staff were very conscientious - even during the show they were very evident and ensuring people's safety. I also think one staff member got some water for a man that was coughing a lot, which is definitely above and beyond! (I don't know for sure as he was behind me, but she spoke to him, left, and came back with something for him).

    Loved seeing The Ocean at the End of the Lane here
    Saw The Ocean at the End of the Lane here before it closed. The staff were all lovely and the theatre was gorgeous. The Ocean at the End of the Lane brought me to tears, it was so well done. If it comes back and you have a chance to watch it, please go see it.

    Motive and the Cue - Fantastic Production
    We went to see The Motive and the Cue. Mark Gatiss played Sir John Gielgud and was amazing, great performance, visibly and vocally he was very believable. Big shout out to Johnny Flynn who plays Richard Burton. His performance and his energy and passion really showed what an incredible actor he is and one I shall be watching.

    Long live the King
    We saw The Player Kings. A pretty much 4hr play with Ian McKellan. A great adaptation and a very well acted performance by all the cast. A massive thank you to the theater for upgrading our seats from poor view to a brilliant Royal Circle view.

    Great Venue
    Great venue , very helpful and friendly staff, plenty of places to get a drink and the toilets were spotless. Seats were very comfortable - just as well as the show was 3.5 hours long. We went to see Player Kings with Ian McKellen - outstanding performance from him and an outstanding production , definitely a must see.

    Essential Theatre Experience
    Saw Player Kings which was superb. Theatre is old and historic and that’s also a fun part of the experience. The seats are terrible though - very hard and not much leg room. It’s a chore to get through four hours. Thought the tickets were expensive though we did have an amazing view.

Outraged. Attended DEAR EVAN HANSEN on Tuesday (17th December). I do not expect to pay substantial amounts on tickets to see a group of immature actors trying not to laugh during a key emotional part of the play. Leading man Sam Tutty showed utter disrespect for the audience who were paying his salary, his fellow actors and the authors and creators of the play. In attending theatre for some 30 years, I have never seen such a disgrace on the professional stage. What is worse, is I have now spoken to other people who saw the show on December 3 and experienced the same type of thing thing. In fairness, the show itself is great, I have previously seen it in New York, but a new London Evan would make it much better. Should be ashamed of himself.
The theatre is beautiful. One of London's finest. Stunningly maintained, and great acoustics.

My daughter and I went to see Dear Evan Hansen, had this review been based on the show it would have been given 5 stars. The show was excellent, the cast was small but they were all fabulous. The theatre is small in comparison to some but had a good atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bar area was well stocked and reasonably priced. There was hand sanitiser and staff encouraged everyone towear masks but social distancing was impossible as the seats are very close together, staircase were busy and toilet facilities are extremely small. My biggest gripe is paogood money for seats in row J-10 rows from the front so technically should have been a perfect view-it wasn’t. Unfortunately we were sat behind 2 men who were both over 6foot-we are only 5’4”/5’5”. We didn’t see the whole stage. At half time we asked if we could move to empty seats which would have cost less than half the price, and staff were very obliging. I would recommend this show but I wouldn’t pay high prices for seats.

A fantastic show “Dear Evan Hansen”. View from Grand Circle Seats was ok. However a tall person in front of us meant you had to look between them for the view. Theatre is dated like all of the London theatres we’ve visited over the years. However, staff were very polite. Standing option also available which I have not seen before. Show is a must see. Five stars mainly for show in fairness. Theatre is just a couple of minutes walk from Leicester Square and Covent Garden station. Charing Cross station is also nearby.

We enjoyed the show Dear Evan Hansen. This is a very cramped theatre so even expensive seats are tight - choose an aisle if you want a bit more leg-room. Ladies loos' are the usual nightmare and very small. The Noel bar is very pretty. Google maps sent us to the wrong location so take care when using maps to find the theatre,

Venue is amazing as was the show. Staff were very helpful. Seats are a little on the tight side for spacing and legroom but doesn't drop the scoring. Pricing is very reasonable too.

Being so close to the front definitely helped as you could see the effort and passion in the singing from Sam Tutty on his debut in the West End. An all round standing ovation for the cast at the end was well deserved x

Lovely touch on entry with the #youwillbefound light on the step.

Guys please educate your team on what a “safe” return to the theatre looks like...despite and expensive stall ticket just by me saying I had a Covid jab got me through to another line...no proof required. More shockingly I asked Robert the supervisor if I could move to an edge seat having had only one jab and being like a sardine in my seat. Despite empty seating he did NOTHING to accommodate kept saying people might join late what even half way through the second half of the show? A really shocking experience that I intend to log formally anyway. The performance of 222 was awesome sadly someone like Robert impacts enjoyment myself and other clients were astonished when he said my name is “supervisor” that is my name. Seriously please get your act together if you want to make this a success. Front of house are so important!

Every seat was booked. There was no space, no empty seats. Toilets tiny for the amount of people. I was in row G. About an hour into the show, the staff let a couple of people in late. Their seats was the row behind me right in the middle of the row, meaning everyone had to stand up to let them get to their seats while the show was going on. The man behind me went to sit back down and spilt his glass of wine all down the back of me onto the seat I was sitting on. It was awful.

Dear Evan Hansen is outstanding, one of the best musicals I've seen in a long time! The story is heartbreaking and thought provoking, I was crying on and off throughout the show. It's relatable, modern and very true of events happening today. The music is amazing, the actors are outstanding, I could go on with the praise for this musical! I would encourage everyone to go and see it, I would love to see it again!

Incredible show that every teen should see - especially if prone to jumping to judgement. A beautiful story brilliantly played. Some seats are cramped but that's old theatres for you - this though is a modern show you should make room for!
