Classical theater for revues and light entertainment

This is sort of rating a theater building and ambience and not the play itself. Chat Noir is the theater in Oslo for musical shows, stand-ups etc, no classical plays. It has been... read more

We saw Herborg Kråkevik and she was brilliant in her show. Varied and very competent. She is one of my favourite artists and this's show only strengthened my impression.

Went to see A Chorus Line with greath expectations. Yes the ambiance is good in this theatre, but the music is just too load and ruins the experience. Both bars should be open and wardrobe be free. An easy thing to adjust.
