We came here to watch the Glengarry Glen Ross play starring Christian Slater, and it was simply superb. The theatre itself is very well located and perfectly kept. Highly recommended

Conveniently situated near Charing Cross/Embankment stations this is a great theatre. Went to see Glengarry Glen Ross starring Christian Slater, Kris Marshall, Robert Glenister and Don Warrington. Sound wasn't particularly good at the start but that seemed to be rectified in the interval. Seats in...More
