After the successful review of the Harry Potter and Cursed Child theatre, we feel that our visitors want to know more about people’s opinions when going to a Theatre/Musical and our valuable tips. This is mainly driven for the importance in knowing in advance what to expect.
So here it goes our selected reviews for the main categories:

Beautiful theatre, amazing talented cast and the staff were also nice. Ticket prices are very reasonable and also the bar prices are very good especially if you go for the deals. Overall a lovely experience.

It was the best show I have ever been to, what we get overseas are sometimes canned music or lip synced for the non main actors… but this you get a mini orchestra with the entire crew singing and acting… really appreciated when my ticketing officer went the extra miles to help me to change up my booking as I have booked a date which I am already leaving the country… thanks Maxwell…
Mytip: For someone that is coming from abroad, I suggest that you take your time to rest before going to the theatre as the running time is 2h45 minutes with one interval only. If you’re arriving in London and going to see it in the same day, it can be exhausting and the experience can be tiring. So, go fresh and come out refreshed 😊

Charming venue! Went to see Wicked here and loved every moment of it. The decoration is very in tune with the play, creating a really memorable environment. The food/drinks prices are a bit high, but that’s to be expected in this type of location. All in all, very recommended place to visit at least once.
Mytip: Enjoy the show 😊

Fabulous theatre. The seats are big and comfy. The circle is nicely tiered so everyone can see. Toilets were relatively good for a theatre. Plenty of space on the foyer, nothing crammed. Wicked was an excellent show. The acting was very good and the singing superb.
Mytip: Nothing to add. The Apollo Victoria Theatre is amazing

This was our first trip to the Apollo Victoria Theatre, we went to see the wonderful Wicked.
As amazing as the actual show was, the real stars were the support staff of the theatre itself. My partner is wheelchair bound and there were two lifts that were required to reach out seats in the stalls. From the moment we wheeled up, they could not be any more helpful, the attentiveness was not just for getting to and from the seats, they repeatedly checked to make sure we were alright and if there was anything they could do for us. I honestly cannot praise the staff here highly enough!
Mytip: For accessibilities I also advise to check the sitemap to ensure that you or someone who needs special access, that all the requirements are met prior arriving to the site. In this case the staff were amazing so you can also talk with them as they are very helpful as well.

Amazing in every single way! Wicked is my husbands favourite musical, we have been four times and every time was fantastic. The staff are so lovely and helpful. They refurbished the building a few years back and you can really see the difference. The seating is great, most seats have a wonderful view and they are comfortable with plenty of space. Disabled access is brilliant. Lots of toilets so there aren’t loads of queues like other venues. The show is highly recommended.
Mytip: Nothing to add really.

The theatre is easy to get to via public transport or taxi. It was clean and comfortable despite the crowds. The staff was very helpful and polite. The bathrooms where clean and easy to access during intermission. I never felt like herded cattle when leaving after the show as I have at many other large crowd events.
MyTip: Although the location is good and easy to get to, I advise always to arrive at least 1h before the show starts. London is a busy city and you don’t want to miss the excitement of entering the venue (and the gossip about the actors 😀 )

Wicked was on and it was great. Good seat in the stalls, comfortable and good view. Sound was good. Lovely Loosley ice-cream at the interval was a reasonable price. Very easy leaving theatre after the show as additional exits opened.
Mytip: They also have delicious assortment of snacks pre-show and sell them conveniently inside the theatre during intermission.

Good atmosphere. Traditional Victorian theatre with lots of height but relatively short from front to back so seats feel close to the action. Only problem was that it got very hot.
Mytip: The temperature is always a discussable matter as each person feels it differently. But it can be really hot on the balcony. The best really is to go one day in advance (if you can obviously) and see what people were wearing. Maybe ask them if they felt cold or not. But like I say, it can differ as sometimes the staff can turn on/off the heating according to the weather conditions.
