Almeida TheatreAlong with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out. The stuccoed building, once the home of the Islington Literary and Scientific Society was redesigned in 2001-2 , making it an even comfier theatre.
