Went to watch King Lear. First time I have visited this theatre. Staff are friendly and helpful. The seats very comfortable and plenty leg space. The only downside was a smell of damp.

Watched Dishoom and Much Ado About Nothing. Both previews that had much potential. Staff at theatre very helpful and nice bar. CitiPark Sutton, across the road, great for those driving.

Watford should be so proud to have this wonderful theatre. The staff and every show I have ever seen here have been top notch. It's like having our own little piece of the west end in Watford.
