Phoenix Theatre Reviews
Saw come from away, back of dress circle. Great view, lovely theatre, very nice toilets! Purchased tickets for kids week, so very reasonable. Never seen a show before where the whole theatre were on their feet literally seconds after the end, for a standing ovation.
I went to see Come from away at the Phoenix Theatre, and it was brilliant. The show was good and the theatre is beautiful. I had seats in the front row of the dress circle and they were perfect. Fantastic view
