So this is a review for the theatre, not the play. I always try and start my theatre reviews like this because I don't think Yelp is the place to review transient, moving productions. Anyway, we saw 12 Angry Men here (side point, this was a 4* star play with 5* acting, no weak link and really interesting insights into 1950's american court rooms).

The theatre, poor theatre, is such a nice...more

We went to see Twelve Angry Men (Which was stunningly good) but the actual seats (O16 & 17) were so uncomfortable that they detracted from the amazing play. I had to keep bobbing my head around to see over the people in front as the tiering is non existent and although I'm only 5' 5", I couldn't find a position to sit in without my knees touching the seat in front!

Very intimate venue. A bit aged but not at all decrepit.

Caught Chicago here last week, co-starred by America Ferrera. There isn't much leg room in the aisleways so tall people won't find their seating very comfortable. Accountics is acceptable though I can only speak for rows D and forward.

The bar in the lobby accepts cash only.more
