There is a massive 10 cubicle "Ladies" on the lower level.* Come out of the main auditorium, turn to your left and go down the stairs to the left of the box office.
*I counted them when I did the venue review. Hasten to add, the venue was closed at the time. I think also these extra facilities were mentioned in a thread on the "Plays" section.

Yes, see earlier in the thread - current offers run to 6th Nov, no doubt more will appear

Doh! I didn't think to look back over the thread. An affordable ticket shall be mine! Thanks very much.

Thank you for missing my posts! I could not find time to visit this site for a while.
I read your review and found myself nodding to almost everything you said, except, instead of thinking of Love Story, I was thinking of Jane Eyre the musical, which is not surprising that both heroines are orphans and both musicals were written and directed by the same people. Both of them had a month-long run each in Japan this autumn (JE was a revival) to very favourable reviews (or my mole in Japan told me so).
Anyway, as you said, the two actors played their roles so convincingly that I was sucked into their world right from the beginning through to the end. They made us care what happened to them, didn't they? Although I knew the story inside out, the last scene still made me weep a little.
The auditorium was about 80% full, and most of us stood up for ovation. I think the entire team deserved it.
Finally, thank you everyone for the useful tip about the ladies downstairs. I briefly wondered what was down there, but did not enquire. I shall not tell this secret to anyone so that I can have the bathroom all to myself next time I visit the theatre (no, just joking).

Absolutely loved it. Makes a change to be able to hear all the sung words. They really complemented each other. What demanding role she has - non-stop for the whole show, and such a beautiful voice. Thought I would be bored with only two in the cast, but I was truly captivated, and must see it agan. The music is lovely.
Loved the venue, especially the staircase to the upstairs. Found the ten toilets downstairs. Funny thing there - when you go in the light comes on automativcally and so does water from two of the handbasins! Faulty wiring?
The only gripe as has been previously mentioned - tiny legroom, such a pity, as the seats are comfy. The restaurant looked expensive to me.
Oh yes - the audience, small as it was, was extremely appreciative with great applause at the end.
