Probably a 3.5. I saw Legally Blonde here. The theater is quite small and intimate. I had a good view but was also in the fifth row of the stalls (usually called the Orchestra in the US). This area is one big pool of seats without a middle aisle, so I'm sure it creates some issues if the folks in the center are late. Acoustics were generally quite good. You have to go downstairs several...more
This theater is fun because it fits a lot of people but is quite tiny compared to other theaters in the area. I can tell that they had to re-stage many components in the current show (Legally Blonde) because of the tiny stage but it didn't hurt the production at all. It was great fun.

The Savoy Theatre sits in the middle of The Strand and is currently recognisable by the giant 'NEVER FORGET' poster outside advertising the Take That musical. I'm ashamed to say that this was what drove me to visit The Savoy, I just can't get enough of those 1990's beats. Actually, it was for a friends birthday (if that reinstates any credibility) and we had a great time.
The theatre itself...more
