This is such a cool theatre. Bustling around Piccadilly Circus, you don't think for one second that this theatre exists, under ground and so well turned out.

The decor is fabulous. I felt like I was in an Agatha Christie story with the Art Deco feel to the place. And the music piped into the bar.

The theatre itself is breathtaking. I immediately took out my phone to take a picture of it...more

The place is really nice looking to start with(outside and inside). Seats are comfy and it's easy to find the seat you actually booked.

Then the play; 39 Steps is brilliant; funny, well acted with an excellent use of simple prompts.

Finally the icecream in the break is a delight!! (And the bar too!!)

Best show in London and I mean that very seriously. Very clever and funny. For only having four actors, they do a phenomenal job.

I would go see The 39 Steps before I'd see any other show in London. But lucky you, most people would rather see Wicked or Les Mis, so you can watch a superior show while they go see some over crowded and overpriced show.more

The 39 Steps is one of the greatest shows I have ever seen! I went in not expecting too much to be honest - it wasn't a show I'd really heard of before and it didn't have the reputation of West End/Broadway shows. I couldn't have been more wrong!

This show is essentially 4 actors playing a whole range of characters loosely based around some of Hitchcock's most famous movies. Even if you're...more

I dont often write 5* star reviews, but this one, for The 39 Steps is deserving.

Why? Great offbeat comedy, lots of physical comedic jokes, and Hitchcock puns.

There are only 4 actors in this, but playing a variety of roles, makng it more amusing and even more impressive when you see the speed and skill that their roles demand.

Well worth it.

Thx Dad for the tickets!more
