Since the theatre was re-built and improved the productions have been more interesting and it has attracted more West End previews and productions.The single drawback if you can call it that is the removal of the central aisle in the stalls which makes reaching and leaving a seat in the centre of the row quite a challenge.

Saw this on Saturday at Theatre Royal, Norwich. Although this is a 'modern theatre' it still has it's charm, staff are very helpful, facilities are good, seats are very comfortable and the view seemed good from most of the theatre. Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a hoot, the premise is that a local theatre company put on Peter Pan and... More

The last show I saw here was The Woman In Black in February with my boyfriend. I've seen this live in London before & the film version but this still scared the pants off me. We sat front row & the atmosphere was crazy. I felt like I was part of the story. Going back to the theatre itself, it's... More

We went to attend the closing night of the musical 'Top Hat', and the show was as entertaining, classy and talented as it was possible to be. There were over 25 dancers and singers on stage performing their hearts out, dressed in stylish 1930s costumes, amid clever stage design and scenery, backed by a tuneful pit orchestra. Given the huge... More

Went mid March. Saw Fleetwood Mac tribute band. Sound quality was good. View pretty good but wish we'd booked a bit lower down. The seats are steep which does help with the view. Surprised about comments with leg room as I'm 6'2" and a fidgeter but was absolutely fine. Only criticism is that they serve drinks in glasses and you... More

I love opera and the rare chance to see it live at a local theatre was treat full of anticipation. As it turned out the production of La Boheme was average although the singing was a delight. However the seating at this theatre was so uncomfortable I cannot advise anyone to go there to see any production unless of course... More

I've used this theatre quite a few times and highly recommend. The seats are positioned well an wherever you sit you have a good view. Latest show was Barnum this weekend and it was a fantastic show, looking forward to my next visit in May.
