This is a terrific theatre,with comfortable seating.Reminds me of Leeds Playhouse,with the open stage.the play itself was extremley well performed ,and despite some lukewarm reviews,I found the production very cleverly staged and along with the rest of the audience,had a very enjoyable and entertaining evening.Thanks!

I saw this in the studio, and was blow away by how good this performance is. The write ups on the internet explain it well. The girl, Hannah, lost her Dad age 17, and this 'play' is her homage to that relationship, her Dads life, death, the impact of love and loss. Its a beautiful piece of theatre that will... More

3rd visit to The Crucible but 1st time I've written a review, only usually review hotel's and restaurants but this needs a special mention! Great venue, excellent seating and leg room all things considered and above all the staff are very good. Looking forward to my next visit.

Treat customers better by letting them take their drinks into the theatre to enjoy the play, it's a theatre not a pop concert, I don't want to drink out of a plastic container!

If you are a fan of Pride and Prejudice and have the opportunity to see the production at the Lyceum (runs until the 6th June) it is an absolute delight. I was a little concerned as I like authenticity in my performances (Shakespearian codpieces are a must) I was quickly reassured. A perfect blend of the original text carefully blended... More

My partner and I had never been to a show of this kind before and were a bit apprehensive. The studio in the round is not large but just right for the matinee we saw on 16th May. The musicians were wonderful and completely in character with the music. The audience was made up of many ages but quite a... More

The crucible theatre is different from many others as it has the audience 'in the round' giving an intimate feel to the performance. There is a bar area and restaurant and is located close to the bus and rail stations.

Went to see the Snooker World Championship, it's a wonderful venue for the sport - intimate without being on top of each other, cameras never get in the way and everyone has a great view. Not seen any plays or theatre, but for the same reasons mentioned above I imagine it's fantastic. It also has a well priced bar (in... More
