It's not the west end and it's no where as grand as those with the chandeliers and balconies and boxed etc, but it's a good sized and the stalls are well place and ascend, as they would a cinema so everyone gets a good view of the stage, no matter how bad the play, which Hazel and I were subjected to. The prices reflect the basicness of this theatre but in no way is it uncomfortable.
A complete and utter waste of time and taxpayers money. The product that they present is of a terrible 'low' standard which is not fitting of such a large venue. Why is this theatre still open when the excellent Greenwich Playhouse is now closed due to the greed of some unscrupulous bar chain and more to the point why have Greenwich Council not re-homed the Playhouse instead of subjecting us...more
This theatre is very old fashioned, you almost feel like your stepping into the 80's but this isn't a bad thing, if anything I like the grittiness of it and it isnt pretentious at all. I've seen 3 shows here and they've all been brilliant. So its definitely content over style here which is so important. Its about the actual art not the beauty!!more
This is a great theatre. It's very central from the train/DLR station and bus stops and is also located near a car park with free parking after 18.30. It shows a variety plays for adults and children and their program changes regularly. There are many pubs and restaurants around the theatre, however the theatre does have a bar. Overall, a good evening out. It does get hot in there though!more
In the home of time they like to start a little late, which is a major bug bear for me and suburban theatres. And they need to put on the air con.
Despite these rather cosmetic issues, the venue gets four stars because they responded promptly to a ticket snafu completely of my making without fuss and in good humour.more
