I loved Chicago! This stage is super tiny. When I first saw it, I thought "Hmm... What the heck can you do on that stage...??" I guess it was the same mentality as checking out an empty apartment before moving in. You don't think a lot of crap can fit in it until you see it all moved in. Anyway - the show was amazing.

Went to see a show here last night, and really loved the vibe. A smaller theatre, yet still has the qualities of any high-end venue. You can see from essentially any spot, which is good for an upper circle junkie like me. Not to mention the Cambridge is located in Seven Dials, which is a must visit area for anyone staying in London.more

I had stalls seats and it was super easy to get into and out...more
