Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Lovely theatre but stage view in the stalls are easily blocked by anyone over 6ft
Nov 2021 • Couples
We saw Back to The Future here, which was absolutely brilliant. A show I highly recommend. The theatre was very clean and all staff very polite. We sat in the stalls rown N which is a great view of the stage. I should say, we did have a great view until tall man sat in front of us who almost completely blocked my view. The stalls do not have much gradient, so if you are unlucky like me, anyone over 6ff who sits in front of you will completely block your view

Lovely cosy old London theatre
Oct 2021
Lovely old theatre. Cosy. Decent leg room and all seats appeared to have good views of the stage. The staff were all happy to help. Someone was already seated in one of our seats and staff were happy and accomplished in sorting out the mistake. Would happily go there again.

A Blast at Back To The Future
Sep 2021
Came here to see BTTF - the musical, end of September 2021. I've only ever seen one other show in the West End (We Will Rock You), so was excited to see this.

It amazes me the difference to the inside of the theatre to what you see on the street. The seats are a bit worn, but not too bad. Staff very friendly. The disabled toilet is on the lobby level, but I beleive the other toilets down some narrow steps -so be careful there.

The show itself was amazing. Highly recommended. The FX on the time machine going 88mph was mind blowing. It's not 100% the same as the movie, but has the programme notes say - you can see the movie on DVD.

Want to go back and see it again.

Delightful customer service
Oct 2021 • Friends
After rushing with my friend to make it for the start of Back to the Future, I just wanted to relax - and that’s exactly what I got to do, thanks to the staff (and of course, those who were a part of the show).

I’d like to mention one member of your team in particular, Chantelle. I felt very looked after and she was filled with much information for the day we saw the show. Also, very persuasive when it comes to selling programmes - a lovely person to make me feel comfortable when I’m milling about the theatre during the intermission.

Thank you all for a lovely experience at the theatre!

Adam a true role model @The Adelphi 🎭
Oct 2021 • Solo
Outstanding performance of Back to the Future. I have seen Waitress here with friends and what makes this theatre so enjoyable is the staff. They go out of their way to ensure you have the best experience ever! A special shout out to the supervisor Adam, a true role model and respected by his peers what a slick system he runs with the ushers, a kind and friendly style which I could see his colleagues enjoyed their interaction with him, that probably adds to why he is so popular with clients and colleagues alike. Unfortunately where my seat was there was a rather large man in front and I could not see, Adam managed to find a seat a couple of rows down so I could enjoy the second half of the show. Strongly recommend this theatre for these reasons 😍

Excellent staff
Oct 2021 • Couples
We came to see Back to the Future musical for the matinee performance on Wednesday 6th October. There were 4 of us with one being a wheelchair user! From start to finish the staff at the Adelphi were fantastic! From the gentlemen outside in the red coats who stopped the queue to let us in safely to Aaron who looked after us for the whole performance. His attitude and helpfulness made the experience with a wheelchair user so simple and effortless. From seeing us Into the seats and checking on us during the interval, to seeing us safely out the building at the end. He was amazing so a big thank you to Aaron. The show was just as amazing and we all enjoyed very much

Best staff but maybe don’t sit in upper circle if you don’t have to
Oct 2021 • Couples
Don’t sit in the upper circle if you can afford not to. It is roasting. The staff are absolutely brilliant my husband got poorly during the show and I genuinely couldn’t fault the staff. So helpful. Back to the future was brilliant.

This is a nice theatre but I was very disappointed that the toilets weren’t cleaned from the afternoon matinee , as I went to the gents soon after entering and found 2 beer bottles and 2 beer cans laying about in the toilet. Not a good 1st impression
