Saw Wicked there. Very nice theater. Really enjoyed the seating. Unlike a lot of other theaters, there was actual let room! That is a big plus!

Not a bad seat in the theater. We saw Wicked there. It was ok. I don't think musicals are my thing but it was an awesome experience.

Were at Gershwin to see Wicked. It's a great venue for that production. As with almost every theatre, it could use more women's restroom stalls, and more refreshment capacity, but the production is "the thing," and it was terrific.

We are two adults and two children. We had stall seats which were good positions and the total cost was about £480.00 for the four of us. Enjoy the show.
