The musical talent was awesome. I loved entire show I ended up dancing near the end together with the rest of the audience. Amazing show no complaints a must see if you plan to visit London for an evening out. My seat was third row on end and no seat in front of me due to layout I had great view. Cost was reasonable.more

I watched Thriller Live here:

The first couple of numbers didn't do the cast justice, but the rest of the show was fab. The highlight had to be the Jackson 5 songs where the youngest singer in the show was a perfect sound-alike for the early Jackson vocals. Throw in all your favourite MJ songs and that equals 2 hours of fun. It's currently starring Zoe Birkett who wowed on Pop Idol with her...more

Hmmm, well, there are certainly some obvious pros and cons to this sweet little theatre in the West End. I greatly enjoyed the show, but my legs are still regaining feeling.

So for the pros: It's beautiful, convenient and, well, old as dirt. How cool that you're sitting in one of the first venues that faced Shaftesbury avenue?

However people in 1888 must have been much smaller than we are...more

Lovely theatre, was there November 2008 to see Eddie Izzard in his short run on the West End with "Stripped".

Beware - stage door is around the corner in a bit of an alley, right by a table dancing establishment!!more

We've been here a few times and as old theatres in London fare this is one of the best. You get good views in 90% of the theatre but being Victorian you need a head for heights in the Upper Circle or balcony.

The bar is a reasonable price too.

If you only go to one theatre when visiting London this is a good choice.more
