Modern theater, perfect for a night in the theater. 1 big stage and a few more intimate stages as well. Great to go a bit earlier, grab some bites and wine before a play.

We are regular theatre goers and yet, shamefully, this was my first visit to the Hampstead Theatre. It is easy to reach by bus and Swiss Cottage tube is close by. On a cool, sunny Wednesday matinee, we enjoyed the nearby food market and there...More

Emilia Fox was as always lovely and her young lover had a great body but struggled with his clarity and volume.The play made points but didn't expand on them. A great set-up both downstairs and in the main space.Lovely fresh salad & quiche.

Does the cast ever sign autographs after the performances at Hampstead.

It's quite relaxed and informal at this theatre and I can only speculate that if you spot a cast member after the play, you would get your programme signed. I have never stayed after the performance.

Not certain, I'm 6 1 and had enough leg room although I must say the seats could be more comfy. The view though was superb in this lovely little theatre. If I was super tall I'd get an aisle seat.
