Went to the matinee of "Top Hat" at the Birmingham Hippodrome on March 14th for my friend's birthday. Purchased the tickets quite late so did not have chance to select fantastic seats, however this proved not to be a problem. We had mid circle seats, Row Q [seats 35 and 36] and had a great view. Lovely theatre and only... More

Wow a night of glitz, glamour, humour and romance all rolled into one incredible show with amazingly talented dancers. Went with a friend both in our 40's and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

On Saturday 14th March, I went with My husband and friend to see the musical ‘Top Hat’ at the Birmingham Hippodrome here in Birmingham. The musical was performed by National London Theatre Company. The sets were magnificent and the costumes were divine and the songs were foot tapping and joyful. This performance came direct from its tremendous success in London,... More

A truly great performance! Go and see this. Everything that the national and local press have praised about this is true. The dancing is amazing. My criticism is that the seats are so cramped. I'm 5'6" and yet there is no real leg room. I found myself shifting from position to position. Really irritating when you've paid £42 for seat.... More

After a couple of mins staff found my booking (only after I mentioning ticketmaster - they could not find at first). A hairy few minutes whilst they tried to find my tickets! The show itself was excellent - humour,... More
