Savoy Theatre

The Savoy was the first theatre in London to be fitted with electric lights. Sadly, any evidence of the original electrics was lost in 1990 when the theatre’s entire interior was gutted by fire. Fully restored by 1993, the Savoy Theatre has gone on to pay tribute to its long history by hosting Gilbert and Sullivan operettas (‘Pirates of Penzance’) as well as musicals (Rodger and Hammerstein’s ‘Carousel’) and comedies.

The Savoy Theatre is a brilliant setting for a fancy evening at a show. You feel as though you're stepping back in time, to a land of chorus girls and tiddly flappers. It's opulent, comfortable and adds to the sense of showmanship Nd performance.

The narrow stage means the views are good from most areas of the auditorium, and the leg room is satisfactory.

The one letdown? The exorbitant price of the drinks even compared to other west end theatres - two glasses of sparkling rosé for £18, and that was billed as an offer! But I suppose they feel the experience wouldn't feel as glamorous if you hadn't paid over the odds for your drinks...
