A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Fantastic theatre.

I loved their Christmas show about Monkey a few years back.

And Five Guys Named Moe back at the very beginning of that show's life!

(Whatever happened to the revival that was meant to have happened last year?)

'The little house that could...'
-is how Joan Littlewood put it!
I cant begin to tell you how bad this place had been left to go in the 70s and 80s. It closed 'for good' on many occasions.

It looks glorious.

Reading you guys' posts has made me start paying attention to the theatre buildings themselves.

...and about time too! To me, the sitting in a gorgeous theatre 20mins before a show adds so much to the whole experience. There are exceptions of course.
