3.5 stars. I just round up.

A few minutes walking from Covent Garden, this is a fairly modern theatre. No historical significances or intricate interior detailing. There are multiple stages here and I believe, two showings of War Horse happening simultaneously when I went to see it.

I recently saw War Horse here... and believe me, it was incredible. The show was without doubt worthy of a 5 star review. But hey, this is about the theatre.
