There's surely space for a fringe-style, smaller theatre in commercial-minded central London but the Arts Theatre is having trouble filling it right now. It's supposed to champion left-field, alternative productions in its cosy two-floor space. 'Waiting For Godot' and 'The Vagina Monologues' both had their London premieres here while 'Closer To Heaven' – the Pet Shop Boys' and Jonathan Harvey's musical about clubland kids – merrily divided opinion. But it's struggled to find similar success in recent years, despite a recent refurbishment and relaunch. The runs are short so it's worth checking out the kids' theatre programme at holiday times.
