We had seats in the Dress Circle but did not enjoy this show at all and left at the interval despite the expensive tickets. The reasons for our lack of enjoyment were; uncomfortable seats with very restricted legroom for a person of even average height,...More

Really enjoyed it and can thoroughly recommend it. Amanda B can certainly belt out a tune. Choreography was pretty good, well done Craig Revill Horwood.

A family outing to see Sister Act. The production was not good... but the theatre was perfectly fine. Good views from our seats (balcony), helpful staff, fast service at the interval bar and decent toilets. Certainly more than you get at some west end productions....More
