We called last night to watch 'The Salon'. I go to the theatre a lot. By far, the worst thing that I have ever, ever seen. Crass, crude, badly scripted. Drivel. Apart from that the theatre is like stepping back into the 1970's. Luke warm...More

Extremely disappointed with the venue. Seemed to be in the middle of a refurb. The place was filthy, carpets disgusting in the dress circle. Only 2 working ladies toilets (one out of order), no running water & no hand sanitiser. However, Belinda Davids was magnificent...More
