Open Air Theatre Regent's Park ... one of the largest theatre auditoriums in London. Over 120,000 people visit each year during the 15 week summer season. The 2007 summer season will include Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Lady Be Good, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Boy Friend.

Went to the Open Air Theatre in London for the first time last night, its pretty spectacular. I was sat right at the front, watching Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the normal ticket price (which i payed) was £31.00 Worth the money? At first i was disappointed when i sat down, all i could see in front of me was a tiny stage and some old rusty metal crates surrounded by a dense forest of trees.
