A gorgeous theatre, comfy seats, and an excellent view - what more could you want? A friend and I went to see Nell Gwynn and sat slap bang in the middle of the front row of the Grand Circle.

I saw Madness of King George III here.The show itself was top notch.

If you are into old Victorian theatres, you'll dig this place. You know it has history because the first balcony (I was in the front row, stage left) tilts not-so-subtily to the right.
