Chloë HarrisonNovember 9th, 2016
Went to see Return to Grey Gardens with Peaches Christ and Jinkx Monsoon. The staff were super friendly, and there was a really good vibe in the lounge before the show. The show was in Space 1. I was sat quite near the back, but still felt close to the stage. Really enjoyed the show I attended, and will look out for future productions there.GOOGLE REVIEW
