  • The Kenya National Theatre is a very good place to come and experience the best acts in theatre in Nairobi. It is conveniently located in the central business district, which makes it easily accessible. There is ample parking for those who are driving and the security is very nice. It has a nice stage where many plays have been acted. It's a good place to unwind and watch a good play which are often being showcased.
  • Much improved over a few years ago, had a packed evening show but bar was not open!
