Due to open in the Spring and announcing its opening season shortly - though this seems cutting it a bit fine:

Yes looks interesting. I think they have done their homework.

Sounds very interesting and promising, though perhaps similar in some ways to the still relatively new St James Theatre?  (If so, I hope this one has more legroom!)  I look forward to news of their opening programme...

Is it the St James with the poor legroom or the Jermyn St or both!?
I know the Jermyn st has or had terrible seating cos was sat in it for Eileen Atkins so when booking for the new show, the funny one, I asked and they said the seating was on three sides for this and she put me on front row. But I understood the St James to be a completely new build so surely not so cramped. I'm going there this week so I will see for myself.

Yes, the St James is a new build but was unfortunately designed by Oompa Loompas

Maybe theatres should give a reduction for restricted legroom as they do for restricted view?

Interesting selection and the ticket prices look sensible - 19.50 for School for Scandal

Yes nice programme but mistakes on website irritating eg phone number incomplete and dates for School for Scandal don't match between pages. Oh well, glitches forgiven. I fancy the s for s and the Travers farce. Nice to have a laugh once in a while.
