Though set back slightly from the chaotic Circus, the Piccadilly theatre is no stranger to crowds. ‘Guys and Dolls’ (directed by golden boy Michael Grandage of Donmar Warehouse) attracted hordes of Ewan McGregor fans in 2005 as the actor pitched up as playboy Sky, while ‘Grease’ in 2007 played the reality TV card by casting winners of ‘Grease Is the Word’, Danny Bayne and Susan McFadden, as Danny and Sandy. A more sober claim to fame: the Piccadilly operated for a short time as a cinema and was behind the screening of the first ‘talkie’ in Britain – Warner Brothers’ 1928 film ‘The Singing Fool’.

Recently saw Miranda Hart in Annie here. Paid for cheap seats so we were in the very last row at the top, so I can only review that area. The theatre itself was lovely, however the cheap seats are not. I struggled to see over the people in front of me and spent a lot of time bobble heading. It was very disconcerting because the extraction fan from somewhere was blowing into the theatre. It smelled of barbecue and made you wonder if there was a fire.

I had the chance to see this musical with my aunt and my brother over the summer of 2016 when Rebel Wilson played the lead female role. She was absolutely amazing! I had only ever seen her in movies prior to this and I was really impressed with how well she performed on stage. She held such a great presence without overshadowing the other actors. We had seats upstairs, which wasn't as bad of a view as I thought it would be because we could see the entire stage. This was great during the singing scenes! Overall, an amazing experience and a great show!!
