Plaisir d'un petit théâtre traditionnel à deux pas de Trafalgar Square, dans lequel je suis allé voir l'adaptation de 1984 d'Orwell (très réussie soit dit en passant, mais ce n'est pas le sujet).

Gag au moment de rejoindre ma place, le numéro de siège qu'on m'avait vendu le matin même (10 £ seulement ! ne manquez pas les billets du jour directement au box office du théâtre à partir de 10h)...more

Small but perfectly formed, nineteenth century theatre. Featuring the plasterwork that is typical of the era. However, this place has done it a little more tastefuly in white and gold, unlike the clawing pinks and blues you can find elsewhere.

We bought last minute...more

This great theatre is down by Embankment Tube, a really nice place away from the main theatres.

Footloose played there for a while, but has begun to tour the UK again. The two lead singers had the most amazing voices, and it was a play where you just wanted to jump into the aisles and dance. But theatre moves on, and a goody for the children is the recent beginning of The Adventures of...more
