    I loved this show! I went in with little to no expectations and to be honest all I knew was that it was based around a group of people attending a tap class. I was so surprised with how much I enjoyed this show. The performances by all where incredible. I laughed so much and felt that the fast pace kept the story moving along well! I began to really connect with each character and loved the different elements each one brought whilst also being able to see myself in a few of them too. The play is not too long and I would definitely recommend this show if you want a fun and heartwarming night out!
    This was an upgrade from the seat I purchased. This seat came with a fantastic view of the whole stage with no restrictions. The people in front caused to obstruction to the view either even when they leaned forward. The seats are comfortable but the legroom is limited (I struggled a little). The theatre is not huge so even being in the circle you don't feel a million miles a way. Not sure about the price normally but I would sit here again for the view!

    The show was absolutely fantastic, I primarily came to see Natalie Casey because I absolutely love her and I've always wanted to see her in a play, the show is about a tap dance class that meets weekly and before I never really liked Amanda Holden but she really impressed me, all of the cast were absolutely fantastic and the show was brilliant!

    I could see the stage perfectly and good amount of legroom, especially for my mum who has recovered from two knee ops.

    This show is brilliant, full of laughs with a good balance of seriousness too. I would definitely recommend it. Each character tells their own tale, perfectly led by a stellar cast.

    This was a fantastic seat. The view was great, seats were comfortable and there was plenty of leg room. A great seat for a great show.

    Great show, fabulous acting, really bonded with the characters.
    Sat in Stalls B17
    Great view of the Stage, could see the actors' expressions clearly. Just one point of the show I struggled to see into the back right hand side of the stage but just about managed it. Would definitely sit in this seat again! However would skip B18 as had a more obstructed view. Lots of legroom as the seat in front only covered half my view and was on the end so I could really stretch out my legs.

STEPPING OUT SEATING PLAN
As quite an intimate London theatre, the Vaudeville tends to give good views from the majority of the stalls, even in rows that are further towards the rear.

The Dress Circle also generally gives good views, but there are pillars in Rows F & K which can restrict some seats. As it does not have a safety rail, the front rows tend to have a clear sight line without having to lean. The Upper Circle is quite high, however good value for money seats can often be found in this section.

STORY
Classic comedy Stepping Out has returned to the London stage in spring of 2017, in a new production directed by triple Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman and featuring a star-studded cast, led by Amanda Holden.

This beautifully funny and delightfully heart-warming comedy is packed full of laughs and had toured the UK in preparation for its West End run at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Stepping Out follows the lives of seven women and one man who are trying to forget about their troubles in a weekly dance class. Despite all being amateurs and rather clumsy at first, they are all getting the hold of the very basics when they are invited to participate in a gala for charity.

Throughout the subsequent months we slowly discover more about the individuals in the group, their personal quirks and the stories they have to tell. Whether it’s the self-important Vera, fun-loving Sylvia, anxious Andy, loud-mouthed Maxine, enthusiastic Lynne, cheery Rosy or nervous Dorothy, they all spectacularly come together, with of course the dour Mrs Fraser at the piano, while they are all led by the always patient Mavis.

Amanda Holden stars in the lead role of Vera. Holden is one of Britain’s most loved stars of TV and Theatre, having been nominated for an Olivier Award for her leading role in Thoroughly Modern Milly as well as starring in a huge range of TV favourites including Wild at Heart, Kiss Me Kate and of course being a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

She is joined by an all-star cast which includes Angela Griffin (Coronation Street, Waterloo Road & One Man, Two Governors) as Sylvia, Tracy-Ann Oberman (EastEnders, Edmond & Boeing-Boeing) as Maxine, Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders, How The Other Half Loves & Sweet Charity) as Mavis and Nicola Stephenson (Brookside, Holby City & War Horse) as Dorothy.

The production is directed by three-time Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman, who made her acclaimed directorial debut in 2012 with her much loved revival of Merrily We Roll Along. Now she focuses her attention on Richard Harris’ classic play, which won the Evening Standard Comedy of the Year Award, when first produced in 1984, before being made into a film of the same name in 1991, featuring Julie Walters and Liza Minelli.

With its all-star cast and acclaimed director, Stepping Out is a beautiful heart-warming comedy not to be missed. The play began previews at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End on 1st March 2017, having had an official opening on 14th March 2017 with performances scheduled to run until 18th June 2017. With a star cast and a heart warming story, this show is one of the hottest tickets in town.
SUITABLE FOR
Stepping Out is a must-see for anyone who enjoys a heart-warming story while also having a good laugh on a night out to the theatre. Those who saw Maria Friedman’s Merrily We Roll Along will be able to expect similar wit and fun here. Coupled with a star-filled cast, what’s not to love? So make sure you get your ticket now.
