Unfair to rate a theatre on a production?
Oct 2021 • Friends
Access is good. I use a wheelchair. I can park and walk to end of row seats in the first circle. Seats are not comfortable. But for dance I find an angled view of the stage is better that from the stalls.

We went to see Akram Khans English National Ballet “ Creature”. Supposedly based on Frankenstein, pulling huge amounts from Wozzeck. Neither texts that most are familiar with.

Some inspired dancing and choreography. But the dramaturgy, story telling was weak for a supposedly narrative ballet. Without the confused programme notes I wouldn’t have had a clue.

It was supposed to be a bleak post apocalyptic world. The music and set certainly portrayed that.

Not a dance event I’d return to, unfortunately.

What a talented cast!
Aug 2021
First visit here to watch 'Singin in the rain', the theatre is lovely, friendly staff, spacious foyer, toilets are clean and the theatre is well seated with a great view! The show itself is amazing, from the costumes to the dancing! It was my first show in a very long time (due to covid of course!) and it didn't disappoint! They all deserved the standing ovation at the end and I did get a bit emotional!

Outstanding Show in an amazing theatre
Aug 2021
We recently paid this theatre a visit to see one of my favourite movies Singing In The Rain. The Theatre is a little out of the way from where all of the others are located. We were staying in Southwark, we caught the tube from there and changed in London Bridge then direct to Angel. It is approx five minute walk from Angel Tube station to Sadler's Wells Theatre.

I was a little disappointed to find they didn't serve any flavoured cider but that was no bother as there was a pub around the corner which was happy to serve us before the show started and they were friendly and welcoming.

The theatre is stunning and it was a privilege to see a show there. It was clean and well maintained and the staff were extremely, friendly and helpful. The show was amazing. We tried to order a drink for the interval but was told this was not possible due to covid even though in other theatres it was fine.

Overall the experience was amazing the show was outstanding the staff did it proud.

Good organisation and well laid-out
Aug 2021
We enjoyed a live performance of 'Singin' in the rain' here. I was most impressed by the speed & efficiency of the bars during the interval, and by the comfortable seats (we were 1st Circle). The venue has bus stops right outside in both directions and is not far from 'Angel' tube station on the City branch of the Northern Line.
We hope to visit again, anytime there is another show we'd like to see.

Covid used as excuse for poor service
Aug 2021 • Couples
Tried to order some coffees for the interval of Singin in the Rain. Told this was not possible due to covid restrictions. Asked how this actually helped and there was no answer I was just told it was the rule! Surely it would be better to have refreshments pre ordered and ready all spaced out rather than having people crowding the bar during the interval! Ridiculous and pathetic service from what I thought was a great venue. This is getting copied all over social media.

Kind Regards

Fabulous final curtain for the amazing Richard Alston company, they will be sorely missed
Mar 2020
An exhilarating Final Edition performance from a much loved company that for a quarter of a century has entertained and excited and joyously delivered the best in modern dance.
This Saturday 7th March their company delivered a marvellous evening of dance to be embraced as the best of contemporary dance in Britain.
Support the cause and go to Sadlers Wells!

Lovely theatre
Feb 2020
This theatre specialises in dance and is a real treasure. The complex is extensive with an additional studio theatre, and large foyer and several bars. We were in the upper circle but our view of the stage was excellent. We went specifically to see the wonderful Cloud Gate Dance Company from Taiwan, who were utterly stunning .

Contemporary and new dance
Feb 2020 • Couples
While the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden is generally very traditional, Sadlers Wells is more contemporary, more experimental and, sometimes, more challenging.

We were there on Friday for Alina Cojocaru, lead principal dancer with the English National Ballet and resident guest artist with Hamburg Ballet, curating and performing in a new programme of classical and contemporary works - the dancing was superb and not too modern, which resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
