We have seen Mischief Theatre's Play that goes wrong and Peter Pan goes wrong and decided to see the comedy about a bank robbery for my birthday treat. It didn't disappoint! From the moment the first actor spoke we were laughing! So cleverly put together...More

How this show is not on Broadway yet I dont know! The only way to describe it is as a mix of Monty Python with old slapstick comedies. The pace is electric and once it goes it just does not stop. Laughs throughout and the...More

Really enjoyed this performance. I appreciated the word plays and visual gags. The players were versatile as singers and comedy actors. Always find it surprising to go DOWN stairs to the theatre, but even the Upper Circle had good visibility of the stage.

Rather dire. Corny. Shouty. Couldn’t wait to leave. Old tired jokes and humour. The characters weren’t funny enough. Didn’t hit the spot for me...plenty of others were laughing though,

Our family just attended "Comedy about a Robbery" at the Criterion. The play and actors were brilliant! The theatre itself was beautiful inside. The outside facade, sadly, was covered up by plastic due to renovation work (we assume.). The interior of the Criterion is to...More

In September on Sunday, was fabulous show. Amazing actors. Nice story. Tickets were as low as 22£. I bought the tickets just a day before from the kiosks. I recommend it.

Went to see 'A Comedy about A Bank Robbery' and it was absolutely fantastic. It's non-stop laughter. The theatre is also beautiful and cosy. It has a full bar which isn't too pricey and you can order ready for the interval. Would definitely recommend the...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

Personal preference of course, but the view from this theatre's stalls is fantastic - it's a small theatre so you're very close to the action on stage rather than looking down on it. Honestly not sure what sort of view you'd... More

Sorry I am not sure. We went in February. It is a very old theatre, maybe take a bottle of mineral water with you.
