Have your say

THIS show follows the goings on of the front-of-house staff in a big West End theatre, revealing that their lives are almost as dramatic as the action on stage.

Momentum Venues, St Stephen Street

Definitely not for children, this show is full of theatrical in jokes, sexual innuendo, and has a great surprise ending.

The experience starts as soon as you enter the theatre, with the actors guiding you (as ushers) to your seats.

Once the show itself starts, its ‘super high energy’ elicits laughter right from the off.

Clever use of video allows for smooth set changes. A great score ensures there’s a tune or two to hum as after the curtain has fallen.

With great performances across the board - each cast member perfect for their role - and staging that fills the large space, special mention must go to Alexandra Parkes as Rosie, whose comic performance had everyone inn hysterics, never more so than during her solo number.

A word of warning, don’t be late - ushers hate latecomers.

But then this is one show it is well worth being on time for.

Until 30 August
