Time Out says

The first new West End theatre to open since 1972

The first new West End theatre to open in London since the early ’70s has a truly wretched name, but in other respects the Nimax-owned @sohoplace is a thrilling prospect, an in-the-round 600-seat venue built to modern specifications – meaning the seats are comfortable, the views are good, and there are an adequate number of women’s loos.
