I’m not really a theatre goer and not overly a fan of musicals so didn’t know what to expect but wow - absolutely brilliant. Front row seats and what a show. From the wonderful cast to the fantastic orchestra and seamless scene changes - I’d...More

Reviewing the theatre not the show (which was great). Somehow most London theatres are just not comfortable. A tight squish, somewhat labyrinthine and inadequate bathroom facilities. Somehow seems to be just par for the course which is ridiculous.

The show was fantastic, loved it. The costumes and singing were great. The Palladium is very easy to find. The only negative thing there is to say, is about the seating. It's a very old theatre so i guess it can't be helped but i...More

An enchanting production very well done, very nostalgic as very much like the original. The children were delightful and a wonderful evening well worth going to see.

Went to the matinee of The King and I. A wonderful show and would recommend it to anyone. But the seating, at least in the Circle where we were, was very cramped and uncomfortable. Also there were no ushers on the circle level when we...More

My mum and dad saw the King and I in the West End in the 1950s, when they got engaged, so I was pleased to finally see this show on stage myself. An excellent production, full of wry humour. Also quite sad towards the end....More

Brillliant show. Ken and Kelly were great. Really enjoyed it. Theatre itself has good view of stage. But could do with refurbishing, leg room is very restricted in the grand circle and seats are quite hard.
