This was the first time that we have visited the QE Theatre, but I can see that it would be a great venue for any event.

Being tall, we notice the spacing for seats. The theatre has very comfortable seating with good leg room. Use street parking away from the theatre so you aren't caught in the crush to get out of the underground parking. Or better yet, use transit.

Had a wonderful experience with our 4 year old grandaughter going to see a matinee of Beauty and the Beast. Great location with underground parking. The problem with it is that it took us over 45 minutes to get out of the parking lot. If you do park underground, be sure to park on the first level near the exit... More

I took my family to see "Beauty and the Beast", and our seats were in the balcony. The person sitting in front of me was unable to sit fully back in her seat, due to her body type. Because of that I had to either lean left or right or at times lean all the way forward, ( probably causing... More

Visited to see Flashdance, Whilst this is a review of the Theater it is worth noting the poos singing and mediocre dancing on this show. The iconic 'water' scene lasted about 15 seconds and the stage presence of the main characters and interaction was 3* at best, chemistry there was not! Now to the Theater itself. Booked tickets with Ticketmaster... More

Pretty good live theater. The acting was good the singing great. The development of the relationship between the main characters was fragmented and lacked substance.

The theater is huge. I had what I thought were good balcony seats and I felt like I was a mile away (front row on the side). The staff are not at all friendly. It feels like a business, not a theater.

We went to this theatre to see Carmen earlier this month. It was lovely experience. Most people were very well dressed and had made an effort to make it special. The entry is roomy and plenty of room for everyone milling around. We had seats upstairs and there is a good bar area which serves coffee and tea if you... More
