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.

A 97-year-old woman's adventures are far from over in this offbeat comedy by London-based theatre company Inspector Sands. It's a surreal look at growing older performed by actors who are fractions of their characters' ages. 'The Lounge' comes to Soho...Comedy Monday May 1 2017 - Saturday May 20 2017
Spencer Jones Presents The Herbert in Eggy Bagel
Jones’s wide-eyed, optimistic, spandex-donning character creation is joyfully absurd. If his infectious fun doesn’t help you forget about this shitty world for 60-minutes, not much will. In 'Eggy Bagel', The Herbert gets a little bit more sensitive than...Character Monday May 1 2017 - Saturday May 13 2017
All the Things I Lied About
The subject of gaslighting is at the heart of Katie Bonna’s show at the Soho Theatre, which originally ran to widespread acclaim at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Just a minute or two off Shaftesbury Avenue , yet the theatregoing experience is so different here. I love this place. The bar is worth a visit all on its own. The performances and spaces are varied. I have seen everything from the bonkers Rubber Bandits downstairs to some pretty cool theatre and comedy in spaces upstairs. I wish London had more places like this right in the heart of town.
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.
