Fortune Theatre in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... else is buried beneath the church itself - very apt considering their most successful production is a ghost story. It's probably as well it is on a quiet road, as groups would defiantly need to rally outside, as once inside there's no room for a large group, except in their seats. The loos are tiny, but clean and actually a step up from various more impressive sounding venues. The bar is cosy, but not ludicrously overpriced, and the option of pre-ordering drinks for the interval speeds things along later in the evening. Souvenirs (sweatshirts, play texts etc) are available from a little cubby off the bar. Once into the main stall... more

Hard though it is to separate the Fortune Theatre from it’s longest running production – The Woman in Black – which has been in residence for 12 years now, I‘m going to try! Located pretty much in the middle of the West End (Russell Street, Covent Garden) this theatre seems overshadowed by its much larger, plusher neighbors. It must be admitted that first impressions here are not exactly awe inspiring - everything looks a little cramped, a little run down.

|Josie Long - Trying is Good|
A vast improvement over her previous shows, and in the best spirit of the Fringe.
No jokes about cocks or how black people talk differently from white people, if that's your thing.
|Mark Watson - Can I briefly talk to you about the point of life?|
Energetic performance and professional grasp of structure, even in the preview show. Very funny too.
He's quite popular, so you won't get to see him in one of the more intimate venues.
|Touch - Bill Dare|
Excellent performances and well crafted plot twists.
Style and realism seem a little confused.
|Norman Lovett's Slide Show|
An amusing look at preserved moments of history, in Norman Lovett's familiar dead-pan manner.
It's still essentially an old man showing some slides and talking about them.
|Richard Herring - Oh f**ck, I'm 40!|
Richard Herring's mid-life crisis tows a fine line between despair and entertainment.
Perhaps too intimately revealing for the weak of stomach.
|Stewart Lee - 41st Best Stand-Up Ever!|
Everything the publicity claims is true.
Self-satisfied desire to remain obscure gets in the way.
|BBC Stand up show live!|
Late night opportunity and great value for money, particularly in the half-price preview week.
A mixed bag of mostly average, lowest-common-denominator stand-up.
|Tom Stade - Setlist|
Involves the audience in trying to make sense of a jumbled board of prompts.
Targeting of the disabled and war victims will doubtless offend.
