An absolutely gorgeous theater, which during my recent visit to London was playing host to the absolutely hysterical Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Never having been there before, I did get a bit lost walking from the Waterloo section of the city, but I am lucky...More

This is by the same theatre company that does the play that goes wrong. Indeed some of the cast have crossed over. It's silly, it's slapstick, it's sometimes obvious, BUT it's brilliant. Join in, boo, hiss shout out, the cast respond to it and indeed...More

Small theatre, so you really feel part of the action on stage. Fabulous play - we haven't laughed so much in ages, my 9 yr old was literally crying with laughter, as was the fellow in the seats behind us. You need to arrive early...More

Currently showing at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftsbury Avenue is "Peter Pan Goes Wrong", an uproarious parody of a traditional holiday pantomime or "panto". We started laughing before the show began as the actors and stage crew showed their feigned ineptitude that would only expand...More

This show is amazing...from the creators of "The Play that goes Wrong" this is like a traditional Pantomime .... once again it is an amature theatre company trying to do Peter Pan. It takes great timing and a great professional cast to pull it off...More

I was in the first row - right at the front!! As that was a cheap ticket. But it was worth it as I could even see tears in the eyes of Micheal Crawford at a particular scene!
Will Michael Crawford continue his role in the Go Between? Was told he was replaced in the 2nd act on Saturday 8-6-16 and did not do evening performance. Is the theatre air conditioned?

I have just booked to come on the eveninhg of december 10th- my son's birthday. The only seats left were described as box A Dress circle 1 & 2. That sounded ok but on all the seating plans I have seen the boxes are labelled differently and I'm now panicking that the seats really exist and if they do will we be able to see anything? Please advise. Thanks Ros Padgett.

I'm really sorry but I don't know what the seating arrangements are as I sat in the stalls. The box office staff are very helpful. Enjoy the performance.
