Went to the Mayflower to see the Producers, the show was fantastic and the theatre is really nice, the theatre has a lot of character from the moment you walk through the doors. toilets are a little cramped and seats could be comfier seats, apart from that a lovely venue.

We visit the Mayflower regularly as it is our home-town theatre. We are very lucky that they have all the large shows come there, just too many to mention! The staff are always friendly and helpful and it has an amazing atmosphere at all times. Last night we saw 'The Producers' for example, which was fabulous and very funny, and... More

The Mayflower Theatre puts on a full programme of events throughout the year from pantomimes to ballet from musicals to amateur productions. I personally love the musicals and even more pleasing that they get the West End productions and top actors coming to Southampton.

The show was good but the overall experience wasn't that great as it was extremely busy in the lobby area if you are Costaphobic or have social anxiety this is not very good. The seats are not very comfortable if you end up with a seat in the top circle the you view of the stage in so seats are... More
