Soho

Its cool blue neon lights, front-of-house café and occasional late-night shows may blend it into the Soho landscape, but since taking up residence on Dean Street in 2000 Soho Theatre has made quite a name for itself. It attracts a younger, hipper crowd than most theatres, and brings on aspiring writers and youth theatre companies. Productions tend to be quite issue-heavy, but the occasional left-field promenade work and a strong comedy line-up add a daring sparkle. Over the last few years Soho Theatre has become one of the best places to see comics breaking free from abbreviated club circuit sets to present more substantial solo shows. British and international talent has included Russell Brand, Michael McIntyre, Kristen Schaal and Doug Stanhope. A major 2011 refurbishment included the launch of Downstairs, a dedicated comedy and cabaret space. Its hard lines, low stage and packed table seating favour the former over the latter but the Soho consistently books outstanding talent from the international cabaret circuit, from Justin Vivian Bond, Meow Meow and Caroline Nin to our own David Hoyle, Bourgeois & Maurice and the Tiger Lillies.
