The Apollo is a little Victorian gem, handsomely decorated in red and gold, with an abundance of golden cherubs and feeling like the inside of a treasure chest. Seats (we were at the rear of the dress circle) were comfortable, with a good rake and excellent sight lines. A pity that when we called in to the theatre an hour... More

Excellent play from the Mischief Theatre again. Theatre was warm (it was freezing outside) and the seats were comfortable. There will never be enough leg room for me, but not too bad in the dress circle. We were to the right so had a restricted view of the bottom right hand corner of the stage. (Not a restricted view seat... More

The play was excellent very funny and have seen all three of this theatre companies productions. However we were sitting in the dress circle seats B1 B2 with restricted viewing. The show was mainly in the right hand side facing and we missed literally the fist half cos all the action was over this side. The seats were about £5... More

My son's 18th birthday was fast approaching and, being the mum I am, asked what he wanted to do, thinking it would be a party or drinks with his friends. He surprised me by saying he wanted to see Peter Pan Goes Wrong! He had seen both the other 'goes wrong' productions and found them funny. We normally sit in... More

Amazing!!! The theatre itself is a lot smaller than others but it's still nice. Peter Pan goes wrong was excellent, so funny and really worth watching! If you do arrive early, some of the cast interact with the audience which is a nice touch! Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend!!!

What a great play. We had a blast. We all know the story of peter pan. When it al goes wrong you just keep On laughing. The best comedy in the west end. One tip. Be On time because the cast is performing when you wait for the play to begin. Great ambiance in the theater

Honestly ! If you find the ridiculous, slapstick and the surreal funny this is for you. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Just as good as The Play That Went Wrong. Only 3 weeks left though I believe a The Apollo though. Thoroughly recommended

We went to see this show last night - with high expectations having seen the hilarious "Bank Robbery that Goes Wrong" at the Criterion Theatre in December. Peter Pan was truly dreadful and not really funny at all (unlike the Bank Robbery). I felt this show was a total waste of money - and at £50/ticket it wasn't cheap! There... More

Having recently seen both The Play that Goes Wrong and Comedy about a Bank Robbery, we knew what to expect with this Peter Pan! And it didn't let us down. Consistent and terrific level of clever and slapstick humour. On top of the great performance, this theatre has seats that a tall man can actually sit in for a reasonable... More

Great evening with returned tickets, didn't know quite what we were letting ourselves in for - what a treat! The production had us in stitches from beginning to end ..... sad that mine didn't let me see the narrator so I missed all his gags but otherwise a great time

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
