Watched Miss Saigon here at the theatre. The decor is stunning with red velvety chairs. The balcony boxes look very fancy. The service was mediocre, very small lobby area. They do serve snacks and drinks in the lobby. During intermission staff come in the hallway to sell snacks like water and ice cream. The seating was comfortable. The audio was loud and good quality.

They do allow pictures...more

The Prince Edward theatre was designed in 1930 by Edward A. Stone. The interior was designed by Marc-Henri Levy and Gaston Laverdet. It was named after Prince Edward (then the Prince of Wales, briefly Edward VIII and later Duke of Windsor).

I remember first coming here as a child when it was the Casino Cinerama Theatre. It reverted to being a theatre in 1978 with the world premiere of Evita....more

Perfect theatre. We saw Miss Saigon and our seats in the back were excellent. Of course the helicopter scene was the highlight. Kudos to the theatre staff who recovered my GF's mobile phone she lost the night of the show and had it for us the next day. Great work!!more

A beautiful theatre, very clean and comfortable. The Grand circle seats are perfect, so I couldn't imagine how great the Lower seats must have been !

Many great restaurants in the area, too...more

We ended up getting last-minute half-price tickets to see Jersey Boys (thanks to Tom (??) in the Covent Garden discount booth).

Our seats were FANTASTIC, the theater is beautiful and the show was phenomenal.

BUT - £3 for the teeniest cup of Haagen Dasz ice cream?? I don't think so! Everyone else was buying them like they were going out of style, but they were seriously ridiculously teeny....more
