Finally I have booked my tickets to see this show in august and canít wait I have heard some great things about it. I have a couple of questions not necessarily about the show but if anyone could answer any of them I would be great.

  -          - Is the theatre foyer big

  -     -  Is there many steps down to the stalls

  -          - How long is the show

  -          - Does it have a curtain and if so what is it like.

Sort of 2 foyers, not huge but reasonable size

Depending on which entrance - one has none, other around 4/5

About 2 hours 50 minutes, including interval

It has a gauze at the start - you can faintly see the set and in the interval a curtain showing theatre auditorium with lots of people

Fantastic show :)

Just having a look at pics of the victoria palace and i have two questions:

1. is there a shop to the side of the stage, in a couple of the pictures there seems to be some sort of a shop

2. in some pictures there seems to be  a break in the left hand side of the stage suggesting there are steps, is there steps and if so why? (Do the actors come out around the audience?)

I suggest you just go and enjoy yourself at this fantastic show - don't worry and stress about all the tiniest little details; what this looks like, where that is, what this does and what happens when they do it all. Go, take it all in, and have a great night at the theatre! :)
