  • Beautiful theater and great staff. Only one sit down toilet available in the men's, so be sure to avoid spicy food before attending. Getting drinks etc can be a hassle. Most seats provide a great view, avoid rear seats on ground floor

Definitely worth the price and the wait. Go while you can!!! It is incredible. The theatre is a very short walk from Parliament train station, making it super accessible!
