The theatre is small and works well for dance. The location just off Aldwych is good with restaurants nearby or a short stroll to Covent Garden. We sat in row B of the Dress Circle and I’m so glad we had seats at the end...More

A well executed show. I admit I’m not a huge dance fan but I enjoyed it. I’d have preferred the introductions at the end from someone with better English but the dancing is amazing. It’s a good show and the theatre is comfortable.

Try to get the isle seats, for example j23, m23, that way no interruptions. I think you will need to look up in the front row. Hope this helps.

2 hrs 30 mins and that includes the interval. So we left about 10pm having watched the evening performance.
