Always great entertainment, this time Juliet (good) and before that a fantastic Motown musical performance. more »
Unless you know the songs there seems little point in seeing this show. The young people around us were clearly enjoying themselves with lots of whooping and cheering but we were left some what... more »
Went to see Motown. I GIVE THE SHOW ITSELF: FIVE STARS!!!! But don't buy seats in the Grand Circle if you're taller than 5'8" you'll have a very uncomfortable experience! I'm 6'1" and I was fortunate enough not to have anyone sat next to or in front of me. I was able to stretch out like a star fish. One foot over the seat in front (shoes off - of course), the other pointing towards the aisle! It was the only way I could get some comfort. The angle looking down on the stage from the Nose Bleeds is borderline acceptable. I think the Royal Circle would have been better. Toilets were clean, staff were friendly and helpful. All in all it was a good night out. Great show!!!
Right in the centre of London, easy to find. Easier to reach by public transport. Not grand but mature interior with good visibility of the stage. Be prepared to queue in the interact for drinks and loos. Smokers must go outside, and arrive early for security checks on entry. Enjoy.
