Critics Reviews

“At the end of this week, the world’s longest-running show will complete its 65th year in the West End. It is salutary to reflect that when it opened, Winston Churchill was prime minister and there was still rationing.”
- Evening Standard UK

“It has passed into the realm of great British institutions, as much a highlight of the tourist trail as the Tower Of London or Madame Tussauds.”
- Sunday Express

Great show. A classic that was well acted. Great cast. The seats were in the upper circle of the theatre somewhat uncomfortable and close to the row ahead. But it's an historic and quaint theatre that added to the experience.

Everything. Loved the play. Great fan of Agatha Christie and the format. The fact that the play had been going for so long gave it a special aura It was something that was an institution and when we were planning our trip a must see. Actors were brilliant and played to the audience the theatre was a major element of the experience in creating the atmosphere for the play. Agatha Christie, you know what you are going to get, as she works to a tried and tested formula, but you are always surprised by the ending

Everything was great : from the story to the actors, the staff, the seats, the music, the lights game and the set. We had a very nice and memorable evening.

The feeling of history and the language was excellent, the costumes convincing. The players were animated, very good projection and elocution. Comedic timing was spot on. The music added beautifully to the voices, and importantly was at an appropriate level. In many theatres, particularly movie theatres, the music is uncomfortably loud and can drown dialogue. Our seats were at the last row back on the ground and still had a very good sense of engagement. St Martin's Theatre is beautiful and intimate. There was a slight musty smell throughout, though not to distraction. Overall, the experience was wonderful and memorable. Thank you !
