Watched a Christmas Carol and it was jaw dropping! The best theatre I've seen in years, the cast were exceptional, the music fantastic and the experience to die for. The hospitality was on point too. Given it is so close to Waterloo this is my favourite theatre in London hands down. I will be recommending this theatre and particularly this production to everybody!
We went to see A Christmas Carol here and it was wonderful. The perfect venue. Small, intimate and atmospheric. I would recommend it, but I understand it's not great for wheelchair user's (yet) so something to bare in mind
Initially it wasn't a good start as they made every one who had a ticket wait outside. Once we were in the staff were lovely. The venue was good but I've seen better. Clean toilets etc. Coats etc had to be put by our feet. Cloak room would have been ideal. The Show itself "Carol" was great.
I loved this theatre, with its unique stage setup and how the audience sits around 360 degrees centre stage. Great actor /audience participation in the Christmas production of A Christmas Carol. Wonderful and memorable.
I went to the basement bar for some late evening drinks. It was quiet when we got there, around 11 bit suddenly filled with people turning out from somewhere. A simple bar with stark decor, but functional and nice.
