The combination of double-Oscar winner Kevin Spacey and top producer David Liddiment at this almost 200-year-old Waterloo theatre continues to be a commercial success, with the 2011 revival of Michael Frayn's 'Noises Off' the most successful show in the theatre's history. Having been absent from the stage for a number of years, Spacey returns to the boards to celebrate his his tenth year in 2014, before finishing his tenure as artistic director in 2015. There are usually plenty of other big names and meaty revivals of classic comedies and dramas to satisfy, though: after a rocky start, the Spacey reign has been an undoubted success.
The Pit Bar, though not exceptional in terms of drinks selection, is a convivial late night haunt that's open to the general public and can be entered directly from the street. Open until 2am Thursday to Saturday, it's a popular choice of destination for those looking for a drink when the Southbank and other bars on The Cut call time. Even in the week it's open until midnight.
