These drummers know how to put on a show! Apart from blowing us away with their instrumental skill, they added comedy and also got the crowd involved with clapping along to the beat. It was a lot of fun. It's their last week playing here I believe, so I would definitely recommend you go see it if you've got the... More

This is not so much a review of the theatre as the show I just watched there. Let me start by saying that not many theatres in London cater for disabled. There is a special entrance for disabled at the Peacock Theatre. Fortunately I still have some mobility but still took advantage of the disabled lift which took me from... More

WOW, how to sum up a great nights entertainment, from the moment of the first beat to the end of the encore, just magical. There is passion, dedication and skill in the performance that just draws you in and I defy anyone not to find themselves tapping away with the drummers imagining that your up on stage with them. We... More

Very old theatre, great atmosphere, excellent show. Our stall seats cost £79 for two where we could see everything. My partner and I came to see the Mother Africa on Saturday night. Terrific evening of dance, music, stunts and good insight in cultural activities. Highly recommended for all ages from young children to OAP's like us. Easy to get to... More

Acrobatics, energetic, ping-pong bouncing, body flippin, wonky balancing spectacular - for all the family. It was nice to see so many young people there, and as for audience participation - just get clapping, cheering and mesmerised by the energy from the show. I took my mum to the Saturday matinee as a present, and she loved it. It's a family... More

Imagine the passion, power, and attitude of Tango. That's we expected. However, we found a loose storyline reminiscent of an American Smooth with all the outdated, guys kissing girls and teasing each other, such as stealing a hat. Dreadful, tired, and unoriginal. Even the basics were missed; not holding a line, dancing out of time, poor sequences. Some moments were... More

Saw Tango Fire at the Peacock Theatre - theatre very easy to get to from our Charing Cross station. Intimate theatre. Modern although they need more ladies' toilets!! It's a slightly cold, impersonal theatre although plenty of staff around which is nice. The show was very good - spot on in terms of timing, long enough but not too long!

Amazing evening with the most talented dancers I have ever seen, the only issue was the seating is very crammed and no leg size.
