Came here to see Michael Wolter's new opera Ava's Wedding. The venue is very nice and the opera was fantastic. Didn't visit the bar so can't comment on that but all in all a lovely evening.

Birmingham Acting School.....O/H and I have seen over 2,500 productions over 45 years and we have seen 6 that were acted at the zenith of acting....two of them have been at the Crescent. It really is... More

A lovely theatre with lots of character. The performance of The Witches was not what we expected but enjoyable all the same. Lots of friendly staff, comfortable seats and relaxing bar. Tucked away from other attractions in the city centre but well worth a visit.

What can I say....a superb evening of Christmas entertainment.The standard of supetb musicianship by Crescent Players is enhanced by their ability to project the selection of songs/readings....ie they can also act.Beats going to a carol concert.

This ames a great evening combined with a meal at Ju Ju's (arrive at 6pm, theatre 7pm onwards). Small 300+ seats with good bar. Selection of plays / operas and musical entertainment all at good price. We went to see the Magic Flute. In warm weather theatre can get quite warm but apart from that makes a good venue. Easy...

I went to see An Inspector Calls in the Main House and the whole experience was fantastic! The theatre is small so gives a very intimate feel and the sightlines are excellent! The prices for ice-creams are also very reasonable and programmes only cost £1! I DEFINITELY wouldn't hesitate to come back to this theatre again!
