  • ChrisP – “I usually like my theatre old and traditional, with fancy Decor, plush seats and a cosy looking inside, so I wasn't especially looking forward to going to the national. Because it is basically just a big concrete monstrosity sitting by the river. But it goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover! I think there's 3 theatre in total and I went to the lyttelton, which is a pretty traditional looking room with the normal stalls and Circle set-up. The quality of plays and actors varies, but there always seems to be some big names there. The prices are pretty cheap too, compared to all the big theatres in the west end. I wouldn't choose the national over a good musical in the west end, but its definitely worth a look if you cant get a ticket for anything else you fancy”
  • glenking – “The national is the best place to see shakespeare in London. Ive been to a few at the donmar with big names like jude law, but the national seems to stick to the script pretty well. Sometimes they put on updated versions ( I saw one that was set in new york), but you cant beat the originals. Everyone has to go to the globe theatre at least once, just to see what it is like, but once youve watched a play standing up in the open air then, trust me, the Novelty wears off very quickly. Give me the comfortable seats of the national any day of the week!”
