This is a refurbished place, where I got to see some amazing plays and musicals. Early booking recommanded, otherwise you'd be just snacking in the nice canteen. Staff is very nice, there is a disabled access (stairs and lift) to help you going to the right floor. Whether you are downstairs or in the smaller places up, you'd hear well.
