Seats were comfortable, view was fairly good, visuals and sound very clear. Queue for ice creams was very long, we didn't have one.

We saw Shrek here the night we arrived from our overseas flight. Maybe this was a mistake, as by the intermission we were ready to leave. The theater is quite beautiful and the seats have much more space than New York theaters.

I have visited this theatre more times than I can remember, and I love this theatre. It is large - larger even than most London theatres of the same vintage. The interior is highly decorative, which adds to the sense of occasion on every visit. It used to play host to local productions, films and top ranking bands (Queen, Genesis... More

We had a wonderful time yesterday and the show lived up to our expectations. Truly a show for all ages (we were all adults!) and a laugh a minute. Expecially Lord Farquaad. There are still seats left for the show so get booking!

I have just been to see Shrek the musical at the Mayflower theatre in Southampton. The show was absolutely amazing. Lots of colourful characters and some brilliant singing and dancing. I love the Mayflower theatre and have been to many shows. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Shrek is a must see.

We had a lovely time last night seeing Shrek the Musical at the Mayflower theatre. The main entrance is very modern with some displays of past performances in show. The bar area is nice although we were there early and by the time we were sat down for the performance we could here it was very busy. The toilets we... More
