We recently were very lucky to receive 2 tickets to attend the Shaftesbury theatre in london. We went to see Memphis and I knew we would both love it. It’s really nice for the other half and I to be able to get out and do things like this. The kids love to stay with my parents and they love having them.
We decided to eat before we went due to the strikes on the tube, we were unsure how well we would be able to get around.
We arrived in London about an hour before the tubes stopped and we managed to get a tube to Euston. From Euston we walked to the theatre. From the station it took us about half an hour to walk at a slow pace. We also wasn’t 100% sure where we were going, however we knew when we arrived as it was very busy around the theatre.
We waited to pick up our tickets at the box office and then went to take our seats. We were seated quite near the back, which I actually prefer as you can see the whole stage. I always feel if you are to close to the front you are constantly looking up and moving your head. We was advised we could move forward to some empty seats should we wish.
The Shaftesbury theatre is a small theatre but this makes it great because of the wonderful vocals. It’s lovely and clean inside and seats were really comfy.
The show featured Beverly Knight and Killian Donnelly and they did not disappoint. Their vocals were fantastic and the dancers were outstanding. They were all so well rehearsed and in time with each other. Absolutely jaw dropping to watch. The show is colourful and non stop the whole way through. Even in the break people were singing as they walked to the toilets and the same on the way out.
All in all I would highly recommend this show. If you are thinking of going get the tickets booked. You will have a fantastic evening.
We managed to get a taxi back from the theatre to Kings cross and it cost £15, not a bad price.
Have you been to the theatre recently? What have you seen?
