Apollo Shaftesbury
Rob Greig

Be warned: Shaftesbury Avenue’s theatres are notorious for their vertigo-inducing balconies and the Apollo’s may be the steepest of them all. But what the theatre lacks in user-friendly design it makes up for in style, being one of the most attractive theatres on the street. Far from being just a pretty face, the Apollo Theatre has come up trumps in the production stakes, with ‘Fallen Angels’, starring Felicity Kendal, David Mamet’s ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ and ‘Rain Man’ with Josh Harnett all proving successes in the past decade.

Apolo is a great venue, well kept, easy to orientate around it and just the right size, spacious but atmosphere intimate enough to enjoy the play. 5 min walk from Soho, surrounded by lots of places to grab pre-theatre bite.

Apolo has magnificent range of entertaining plays. Staff is kind and helpful, my fav amongst all of them, are the ones serving ice-cream during intervals of course ;) !
