What a great venue! Saw Jimmy's Hall and was enthralled by the music, dance and performance. I highly recommend the play and the place.

The Abbey Theatre is a beautiful venue and the show was superbly done. Our brother summarized the story before we went but until we saw the show, we didn't realize what an important person Jimmy was. An excellent show.

I hadn’t been to the Peacock Theatre is a while and it was great to return for this production of ‘Class’. With the café being quite busy when we got there, there are not many seats or much space to wait before the doors open....More

This was hands down the BEST play/musical I ever saw! The actors are incredible and at the end, I was crying. I wish they had recorded the music from start to finish for people to buy!

Sorry Julia, I don't know. I'm just a punter who reviewed a play. Perhaps their own website will have the listing. The Theatre Festival is around that time. Paul
