The Playhouse Theatre is a nice but cosy theatre in central London. We essentially sat in the second to last row on the mezzanine level but we're still able to see everything. If you're looking to save a few ££ don't be too worried about missing out of anything if your seats are further back!

The staff are friendly and charming.

I went to see Spamalot, which was great fun! And which is offering great value tickets at the moment.more

That being said, even though we were late due to dealing with an amazingly terrible bar nearby, they took us up the stairs and snuck us right to our seats. Yay.

We bought last minute...more
