First visit to this Theatre (second time seeing Frank this year) not much to add that hasn't already been said, we were high up in the Gods, good view and sound, drinks are rather pricey, £4.50 for a bottle of Bath Ale, stewards very helpful and friendly, an enjoyable night out overall, and situated opposite Schwartz Bros Burgers for a...

Although the theatre was very comfortable and nice the Wooster and Jeeves production was awful. We had our drinks at the interval then left.

An exciting visit to the Ustinov. Our first in the studio theatre but certainly not our last. Whilst we have visited the main theatre on occasion in the past, we were very impressed by the excellent sightlines in the smaller theatre and the close relationship between the actors and the audience. Fairly priced, we hope the new studio theatre being... More

went to see a comedy at this wonderful theatre in Bath. The theatre itself is a well maintained Victorian building full of charm and old fashioned grandeur. The ushers are helpful and the seats are comfortable, I have been here a couple of times and no matter where you are seated you have a great view of the stage as... More

We have been to the Theatre Royal on many occasions and have always had a great night out. This time it was Jeeves and Wooster. We had forgotten how much fun an old fashioned farce could be. It was great fun and the performances by the 3 actors were all brilliant. The evening was somewhat marred by a couple in... More

What a great first time visit to the Ustinov Studio Theatre! This intimate setting was a positive contribution to a great piece of theatre in seeing Alun Armstrong perform in 'Exit The King' by Eugene Ionesco. The whole cast were magnificent in this intriguing play. I look forward to visiting the Ustinov on many more occasions - I cannot give... More

We saw 'Exit the King'. Fantastic acting from all the cast but the play was a bit turgid. The seating in the studio is not comfortable. 2 seater flip up seats do not allow for larger people. My husband isn't large but he felt very uncomfortable throughout the performance. Not enough legroom.

First time we'd been back to the Theatre Royal after their refurb and found the whole place even more impressive than before - it's a lovely old theatre and its charm and period features have all been retained and sympathetically modernised. Took in a great play from the middle of the C20th - Ionescu's "Exit the King" which was well... More
