Having been to The Blue Elephant Theatre to watch The White Devil by Lazarus Theatre Company (which incidentally had the same exact feel as Othello and Julius Ceasar had, original at first, predictable and repetitive now), I wondered to myself if it was worth the journey. Whilst the production was not in any way gripping with the exception of one or two performances, I couldn't help but feel disappointed that I'd come all this way. This is of course, not the venue's fault, however, when you have to walk 15-20 minutes and up a road which is more of an alley to get there, it would be encouraging if you were then treated to an original piece of theatre to make it worth your while. The actual space is small but lovely. The stage has a nice depth to it, however, the seating is somewhat uncomfortable. The bar is spacious and nicely firnished and ticket prices are very reasonable. All in all a good little venue, just make sure you are selective in what you see there if you're not local in order to make the trip worthwhile.
