Disapppointed to find theatre doors do not open for pre theatre drinks. Significant numbers of visitorsto the show in then crowded coffee shop opposite on a rainy cold night. The theatre was very atmospheric. The show was brilliant. Even if you thought you had worked out who did it the villain was a complete surprise. Would recommend it to anyone.

Brilliant plot kept me guessing from beginning to end as to who dunnit. If you like loud fast moving theatre then this is not for you. Takes you back to a different era, the actors were all so professional and polished. It’s what I expected but enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I had not looked up any information about the show and was glad l hadn’t, it made the story far more exciting.

Great show. Really recommend seeing this play! Great ‘bang for your buck’. Couldn’t fault it. We sat in the upper circle, floors were a bit uneven and the seats were a bit hard, just take a scarf to sit on. But it didn’t take away from the performance at all. Perfect view and could hear everything perfectly.

Great to see Agatha Christie on the stage, rather than over dramatic films or TV. Upper Circle is quite high but everything is clear and we had good visuals and audio from very back row. Seats aren’t that comfy but, to be honest, you’re so gripped and concentrated that the time flies by. My kids are 17,14 and 13 and loved the experience.

There would be very few theatre goers who have not heard of Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap and that it has run continuously in the West End for 65 years. It was probably the latter factor that led me to purchase two tickets for the production when on holiday in London recently - I mean a play has to be a winner to run for more than six decades doesn't it?. Unfortunately, the more recent of those years have not been kind to The Mousetrap. The script is terribly dated, the acting by and large is mediocre and often uneven and the only way to describe the set is drab, tired and unimaginative. As the actors took their curtain call, I couldn't help thinking that the central question of the night was not so much a case of "who dunnit" but how had this piece of theatrical fluff continued to suck audiences in for 65 years. For my money, it was 'a 'mouse inextricably trapped in the past' and as such, a very disappointing night in the theatre.

I had wanted to see this iconic show for some years and finally took my chance last night with 3 friends. I must admit that I came away with mixed feelings, delighted that I had shared in the record-breaking run of performances and spent an evening in such a charming little theatre, but disappointed by the pace of the show, the confines of my seat, and the failed attempts of the staff to multi-task at the venue. Desks were unmanned and direction/guidance was totally absent. We chanced upon a bar in the interval which was empty as nobody else had managed to find it!

I have been an Agatha Christie fan for decades. It was wonderful to get to see a play that is not only fun and well acted but is also a piece of theatrical history. St Martins theater is the perfect setting. I loved everything about the performance.FYI....if you are seated in the balcony, be aware that seating is close quarters....don’t bring backpacks or large shopping bags with you. You won’t have a place to put them and you will make those around you more crowded then they need to be.
