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. One of those things estate agents call 'character'. And this place does have it, as it dates to 1901, so even though by London standards its...more
