Triptide Thoughts

Its location is perfect for theatregoers, and at night the lights of the theatre dazzle the street in great glimmer. So even if you don't want to see a show, it is definitely worth walking past the theatre. The current show "The Book of Mormon" is controversial but yet has been HUGELY popular:
"If you are easily offended or hypersensitive, don't go and see this show. If you want to see the funniest live show you'll ever see; this is the one. It's absolutely hilarious. I couldn't recommend this show highly enough."
"I haven't laughed so much in a long time! I have no idea how to explain this show to anyone else - you just have to be there"
"Loved the show, had no idea what to expect but was so funny, also amazing acting and singing. Highly recommend!"

"We saw The Book of Morman"

Great venue very close to Piccadilly tube. Reasonably priced ice cream and beer with plenty of leg room (and coat room). Although we were up in 'the Gods' on one side of the theatre our view was unimpaired and unrestricted and we could see everything
