When I went: 3 October 2016, 25 February 2020
Typical price: Cheap (for London) – top tickets at £50
Special points: Edgy, hipster-like feel
Arts Theatre in a way epitomises smaller London and New York theatres – it has a small cafe at the front through which people queue to get their tickets, it is cheaper than most theatres and the staff are young and friendly.
The seats are not massive but the prices are reasonable (contributing to the lower average age of the audience-goer) and the theatre big enough to house edgy, ‘alternative’ productions such as American Idiot.
