This is such a fun play - I laughed so loudly that my husband got cross! Lovely old theatre which is smaller than some and really ornate. Bar area really nice and no queue for the ladies loo (first time ever in a London theatre). Seats really comfortable and great view from the stalls. Great night out.

Currently showing at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftsbury Avenue is "Peter Pan Goes Wrong", an uproarious parody of a traditional holiday pantomime or "panto". We started laughing before the show began as the actors and stage crew showed their feigned ineptitude that would only expand as the evening went on. I won't ruin some of the jokes, many involving physical... More

We wanted to see “Peter Pan goes Wrong” after seeing "The Play that goes Wrong" at the Duchess Theatre earlier this year. The performances were at the Apollo Theatre. We decided on a day trip and booked the tickets using the website. We found the Apollo theatre very easily (well using Google Maps on my Mobile !!) Once inside the... More

The members of the "Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society" attempt to stage a classic production of Peter Pan and with flying mishaps, set calamities and cast arguments, this play provides one of the best comic diversions and entertaining theatre experiences for all ages. I was able to obtain a deeply discounted ticket at the TKTS Booth at Leicester Square for a... More

This show is amazing...from the creators of "The Play that goes Wrong" this is like a traditional Pantomime .... once again it is an amature theatre company trying to do Peter Pan. It takes great timing and a great professional cast to pull it off and they DO! Peter is hanging from a rope swung about the stage knocking down... More

What a play. A packed theatre and a great performance. I am not sure my wife and I haven't laughed so much for so long. The whole play is full of slapstick and comic story lines. Please don't miss one of this companies brilliant plays, you won't regret it.

We had never heard of this show and ended up outside the theatre by default 3 hours before the show. Sales staff were great and very helpful when enquiring about the show. We chose the last few seats in the dress circle, on the end of row C. A slightly restricted view of stage right but only because two people... More

Two seniors enjoyed the 'Play that goes Rong' so much that the whole of this trip to London was based on coming to see yet another masterpiece from the Mischief Theatre Company. Every aspect of the production is superb, the staff front of house welcome you, and as soon as you are in this delightful theatre, then you feel part... More

The theatre is quite small. I had a seat at the rear of the stalls.Very good view of the stage and felt quite intimate even though there were empty seats. The entire show is hilarious farce from start to finish and without giving too much away there is great opportunity for audience participation and even an underwater sequence. I would... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
