Saw Matilda here, which was a great show, but the seats at the aisle, second row (B21/22), are terrible. They were full price and said nothing about restrictions, yet a large portion of the stage on our side was invisible to us due to the set. Couldn't see what was happening on the ground either due to the height of the stage. The lack of height difference in stalls also made it hard to see...more

Went here to see Chicago and although I was highly disappointed in the show the theatre was fine, with a small, private feel to it. Spacious seats, good service - just wish the show had been better ! Felt a bit like watching a bad rehersal... But I guess I'd go back to this theatre to see something else in the future.more

Since it was built in 1930, the Art Deco interiors are absolutely stunning. The moment you walk in through the front doors, you are able to see an Art Deco frieze...and every detail inside is exquisitely designed, from floor to ceiling.

There is plenty of leg room in the stalls...far more room than most...more

Does this have anything to do with the song "Fat Bottomed Girls"? That's by Queen and they're from England, right?

The reason I think there might be a correlation is because the seats at this theater are huge (compared to seats at Broadway theaters in NYC). They are really roomy with plenty of space for legs, hips, thighs, etc.

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

Lovely art deco theatre. I recently saw "Matilda" performed here. The views from nearly any seat would've been great. Comfy seats, lovely interior design to this historic theatre. My only complaint was that it was a bit cold. Even in January, I don't expect to keep my coat and scarf on throughout a performance.

Would happily see another production here! (Or, heck, I'd go back for more...more
