Tired old theatre, with no real character at all. Disappointing visit and won’t be going back in the future.

Where to begin? This is the last in a good series of Wilde plays at the Vaudeville. It is his best but the director wilfully ruins it. This production has no subtlety with the cast shouting at a frantic pace. The beautiful lines are lost...More

The theatre is right on the main road at 210 Vaudeville Avenue. You'll be greeted by stairs almost as soon as you get in, I did not note any alternative arrangements so you may want to check with the theatre if you struggle on stairs....More

Play and staging were great and the play is hilarious! Theatre is old and traditional and the seats are a little tight, but overall a great experience and location to see these classic plays.

The cast was wonderful. Frances Barber stole the show with her diction and characterization. Nathaniel Parker was not far behind her, as were the two wily Foxes and Susan Hampshire. Great supporting cast. Creative and grand production values. Loved it!
