Phoenix had an auspicious start in 1930 when it opened with a cast including Gertrude Lawrence and a young Laurence Olivier in Noël Coward's 'Private Lives'. It went on to stage a mix of highbrow dramas and musicals before committing to the latter genre when Willy Russell's 'Blood Brothers' took up residency in 1991 – and it hasn't shifted since.

Though I found this theatre pretty cold, it was clean and we'll kept. The stage wasn't huge but well managed at the time of production.

Their bar was cute and secluded which I enjoyed!

A lovely theatre indeed!


Beautiful old theatre with original features throughout.

The staff are absolutely lovely and there are a couple of bars to choose from for your pre/mid show drinks.

I highly recommend this place for a truly authentic West End theatre experience.

Only down side as always with these old theatres is the minimal toilet provision for ladies!


I visited just after Christmas last year, as part of my nephews present we came to see Peppa Pig's Surprise, which was playing for a short time here. We were in the “cheap seats” on the highest level, but the tiered seating still meant we had a great view! There can have been a bit more generous with the leg room, I was okay but my 6ft brother was slightly cramped. I was impressed how well they were able to bring the 2D kids cartoon to life on the stage, but they certainly delivered - credit to all involved as it was a job well done. What a treat, the show was well received by the young audience and their parents/guardians alike!


I loved the history of an old theatre and this one is beautiful. Bathrooms are small and hard to get to. The view, even from the back is good, but the seats are really cramped and uncomfortable.

It's a nice location, especially since they've opened the road.
