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.

If every there were a place in London to get a year-round taste of the Edinburgh Fringe it's here: because comedians and cabaret are an integral part of its bill, because so much theatre work from the Fringe transfers down here, and because with its multiple rooms, late shows and ever-buzzing bar, it does feel like an Edinburgh Fringe venue – and a good one too.

It has to be said that Soho excels in almost every area apart from the production of good in house work, something it's consistently struggled with (though it has many fine co-productions). But this barely impacts on anybody's good time, and it's hard to hold it against the most fun theatre in central London.

watched Barbarians (technically not in Soho Theatre but produced in conjunction with them at a nearby offsite) which blew my mind. The passion and the realism of the whole experience really drew me in and did not feel at all like the 2.5 hours it lasted for. One of the few semi-immersive experiences where the audience moved along in different settings, and each one had a purpose. 

The actors were stand out and casting for them was amazing. Definitely another standout performance from the tooting arts club!

Right in the heart of Soho with nice eating and drinking establishments nearby, there is always a good show on here without the prices of larger venues - I love it.
