Although Curve looks amazing from the outside inside is like being in an NCP car park. The drinks are served by surly staff in plastic glasses and the bar area is effectively standing in a draughty corridor. In the auditorium despite buying expensive seats in the stalls towards the stage the raking is very poor and for anyone sitting behind... More

Been to the curve many times before but never taken my children! This time we booked to see "we're going on a bear hunt" manager to get front row seats for 2 adults 2 & 4 yr old plus a baby amongst the school parties! Performance was great with good audience participation and right length for little ones. Great first... More

Alas the haymarket theatre is no more but the Curve theatre (they dont like the 'the') is proving very popular. We saw the world premiere of the Peter Pan musical last year and this week The sound of Music. Both productions were superb; great performances and spectacular scenery (proper mountains not a pile of scaffolding so i didnt have to... More

Have attended many shows here. Always enjoyable. There's really not a bad seat in the house. Saw The Sound of Music before Christmas - great production & set.

The Sound of Music was fantastic. The sets, singing, actors and production were top notch. We sat in the balcony and the view was great. The front row has more leg room and is easy to get to from the lift with no steps. Car parking can be booked with the theatre tickets at a reasonable cost and the car... More

Took my Mother in law to see The Sound of Music here. The show itself was fabulous & the actors who played the children were especially impressive. Having never been to this theatre it surprised me that although we requested disabled access seats with plenty of legroom for my mother in law we merely had an standard aisle seat with... More

A great production The Sound of Music is a good show, went with family , only one thing to gripe not realising our seating was just perfect but not for an 8 month mum to be who couldn't move freely. So if you are pregnant I would say sit on an isle seat so you can get out to stretch.... More

Once again, we had a fantastic time at the curve theatre - we are so fortunate to have such a venue in Leicester. The Sound of Music was a superb production, adding to a long list of brilliant shows we have seen there. Great show, top venue, and lovely cafe too!
