I have recently noticed a sunflower growing very tall in the field of London theatres, that is standing out as one that nurtures new talent, and outstanding productions of all genres. This tall majestic flower basking in the sun is Soho Theatre.
With a 150 seat theatre with additional 90 seat Soho Upstairs venue and Cabaret space, this venue is multi tasking with catering for the vast genres that are in London to be brought to the forefront right now. Additionally it’s location is a 5 minute walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station which is very convenient.
With three visits to Soho Theatre since the beginning of January I can safely say it’s because I know what I will see there will be engaging and provide a great experience no matter what the genre of show. When I saw Funz and Gamez at the BBC New Comedy Awards I found their comedy show refreshing as well as downright silly which I love! Booking to see their run of performances at Soho Theatre really introduced me to the venue, thanks Funz and Gamez.
Although not a major factor in it’s brilliance of course, I should mention the theatre has a great Bar that is decorated in a very quirky and welcoming decor that reflects the diversity of styles that make up the theatre overall. If I had to describe it it would be a New York diner style with the pictures on the wall of entertainment icons.
With many opportunities for new scripts to be given the green light and crafts to be learned Soho Theatre has a way of giving back and giving to the future of Theatre. Whether you are 6 or 96 the theatre will have a workshop or course that can project your talent and passion.
