We visited the Hippodrome on Saturday to see the Lion King, it was our first ever visit to the Hippodrome and started off well. It was a blazingly hot night but the foyer and bar area were wonderfully cool, the aircon obviously doing it's job. The whole theatre is really well done out and much nicer than a lot of theatres. Upon entering the auditorium though we were hit by the heat, either the main auditorium isn't airconditioned which I find hard to believe or they didn't have it set right. Despite only wearing shorts and a t-shirt I was uncomfortably hot throughout the whole performance to the point of actually becoming sticky and sweaty, god knows what was going on with the aircon as at the interval we returned to the bar area and it was wonderfully cool in there. The show was great and wasn't ruined by the heat but it's something they need to sort out for the future.
