“Wonderful show”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Saw Ballet Rambert's performance of Rooster last night . Amazing show. Very simple sets, stunning dancing by all of the cast. Particularly enjoyed the Rolling Stones bit.
Theatre Royal excellent as always. Nothing to dislike really. Beautiful old theatre, friendly helpful staff

“Lovely old theatre - very attractive”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Saw great play here. Great imagination in use of scenery and set for play - Dial M for Murder. Comfortable seats and good leg room.Impressive building from outside. Theatre tickets get your free Metro travel 2 hours before and after show - great idea. Near Monument Metro station.

“Always worth a visit, but it will be good when the renovations are at an end”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Firstly I love the renovations they made a few years ago, replacing the old, dated chairs with new ones that look more authentic and are really comfortable. The climate control is also a lot better now & the shows that are on generally worth visiting (Dial M for Murder today a really thrilling and well staged production). But the change in the position of the box office is a real pain now, with queues in the way of the stairs & the relatively new cafe/bar closed down for alterations which puts a strain on the first floor bar area - if you want to sit down with your interval drink I recommend you get a plastic glass & take it in the auditorium until the works are finished!
