The Tricycle theatre situated on the Edgware Road in Kilburn.
Parking is difficult outside, but there are many side streets nearby where restrictions are mostly lifted at 6.30pm.
The play 'A Boy and His Soul' , written and performed by Colman Domingo was fantastic. The name Colman Domingo is one to watch out for.
The one man show, followed the life of a boy from the ghetto, through his childhood, teens to manhood, where he 'came out of the closet'
His life is illustrated with music from the sound of Philadelphia to Motown, with all the famous classics.
He assumes the character and mannerisms of several people associated with his progress through life.
His acting, dancing and singing are outstanding.
If you like good acting, dancing, singing and sounds of the 60/70s this is an absolute must.
Very reasonably priced seats, which are a little squashed and uncomfortable
A definite must see!

We attended a performance of The Matchbox on Monday evening, should you get an opportunity to see this play before it ends on Saturday 1 June, please do, it was spellbinding.

I went to watch 'The Match box' and the theatre exudes artistic ambience just right enough to set your mood for the excellent show to follow. I went for unallocated seats and dont regret it as I queued up half an hour earlier and got lovely seats with enough leg room and close view. To be fair, the whole setting is intimate that any seat wont be disappointing except for maybe the top row ones right above the stage where I saw people leaning over sometimes to catch the artist in the corner.

been going to the Tricycle for many years. have a fantastic range of productions and almost always of very high quality. the programme is always diverse with a leaning towards the political and it makes sure that it appeals to the local communities of N W London. if you haven't been, then definitely look it up. great bar and cinema as well.

Its been some years since my last visit to the Tricycle Theatre, it was far more comfortable than I remember. Paper Dolls was well worth the £20 birthday present from my partner.
We ate here and at £7 the food is wholesome, fresh and tasty.
