Rough around the edges, but with a populist charm, the Garrick has been known to stage the odd dud in its bid to please the masses. A standard fare of musicals have been dished up in the last few years including ‘Zorro’, that brilliantly fused the talents of Isabel Allende, Rafael Amargo and The Gypsy Kings; and Spain’s painful ‘Peter Pan el Musical’. The long term residence of JB Priestley’s ‘An Inspector Calls’ is perhaps the theatre’s greatest claim to fame, the production turning the Garrick into something of a student and tourist pilgrimage.

A very comfortable, yet historic theatre a stone's throw from Leicester Square tube or Trafalgar square, charming staff, comfortable seats which give a good view of the stage even at the back of the stalls. Only downside is the constant rumble of the Northern Line underneath our feet.
The current production of Rock of Ages works perfectly here, in a smaller, more intimate theatre in London's Theatreland. This particular production works perfectly, especially the parts when the cast interacts with the audience. Cannot recommend this production enough. Great front of house staff.
