The attitude of the staff was terrible. Rude and aggressive. My husband is disabled in a wheelchair, now for twenty years the disregard was shocking. Show some empathy for your seniors. We paid £45. for rubbish. Ballet boys. it was deafening.

A great night out of comedy, J Pies show well written and intelligent, made the audience not only laugh out loud but also think about the topics of his show.

Hi, went to see matinee of Saturday Night Fever on Wednesday. Very talented cast of singers/musicians/dancers, although at times female singers were uncomfortably loud. However what really spoiled it was the frequent usage of the F word and other American expletives which would not have been heard in 1976 and did not reflect the era. As most of the audience was of a mature age the response was very poor. In fact it did not come alive until the finale which was great and more in line with what people had come to see and hear. I accept that maybe a younger audience would not have found the language so offensive as regrettably this is now everyday speech for some. Disappointing as other shows have been much more enjoyable without the vile language. hope this isn't t a taste of things to come .
