The theatre is stunning, old and truly makes you feel as if you've stepped back in time, just off Piccadilly Circus the hustle and bustle creates such excitement around the theatre. The food and drink from the bar is pricey, but what makes this trip is the show.

If you haven't seen the 39 Steps then go see it now! Go! It's an impressive play performed by just three people! I've been to see it...more

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 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
