Was looking forward to seeing "Bank Robbery" but ended up quite disappointed. I was expecting a raucous comedy but in the end found it not very funny. Also the theatre has a lot of very bad seating which made the play hard to see in...More

I love going to the theatre, but found this show quite cheesy. It tried hard to be funny, but didn't quite cut it in my opinion. The cast put a lot of energy into the show which I always appreciate, but it's really not a...More

Went to see a comedy about a bank robbery. The theatre was beautiful, but beware it's a underground theatre so if you choose the stalls then expect stairs. Overall , fantastic and staff very friendly.

A Comedy about a Bank Robbery. An amazing theatre, it really takes you back in time. As for the Play, we could only describe it as witty, fast paced, superb acting by everyone and truly a fantastic evening.

Love the Criterion, it's a really special theatre with its original Victorian layout and tiles. The comedy about a bank robbery is really fun lots of word play and double entendres good for teens and adults it's a comic and clever piece.

Very entertaining fast paced play. Use of english at its best with plenty of double entendres and a bit of slapstick. Well worth a viewing. Theatre is in good order. Make sure you don’t get pillar seat. Worth paying a bit extra.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

Do you love musicals, plays and comedies? If you do then Piccadilly is the right place to stay. It is also a great place to shop. The National Gallery is 5 minutes away; Big Ben is 15 minutes away. Use the subway to get... More
