We have seen many shows over the years but this was superb. I managed to get 2 tickets the last in the rear stalls. Usually I like to be nearer the stage but these were good seats. Michael Ball was starring & stole the show. Also there were Joe Pasquale, Joe McElderry, Billy Pearce, The Krankies, Lesley Joseph, Lisa Riley... More

This production was excellent! The skill of the performers and the technical crew was fantastic. Loved the actor that played the part of Cosmo, and Lina Lamont's voice was suitably horrid, don't know how she kept it up throughout. The "Rain" number was unbelievable, was worried he was going to slip, and he was absolutely drenched when he went off... More

This Is our first visit to the theatre as we live in the south of England and when passing through we noticed that Singin in the rain was being performed. The show was excellent and the theatre was lovely with comfortable seats...something that you don't always get in the west end theatres!

Just seen another superb production at this lovely theatre. "Singing in the rain" is simply brilliant, from the production crew and technicians right through to the musicians, actors and dancers. Having seen Donald O'Connor in the film version, I never thought any actor would be able to do justice to the part of Cosmo, but Stephane Anelli was amazing. The... More

The Alhambra theatre is one of Bradford's better sights and puts on some good shows. The refurbishment some years ago is really paying off. The foyer area before the auditorium has bars and a restaurant and the theatre decor itself is clean and pleasant on the eye, all in all, a good evening out to take in a show and/or... More

I went to see Singin in the Rain on Wednesday night and it was fantastic. The cast, costumes, and production was brilliant. I loved it so much that I have booked to see it again next Thursday.

Visited the Alhambra to watch singing in the rain but booked in to eat at the theatre restaurant first, the menu was small but covered something for everyone, and we had some challenging dietary requirements. The food was excellent and the staff were even better, couldn't do enough for us and did it with a smile, I can thoroughly recommend... More

My wife and I have frequented the Alhambra on numerous occasions. It is a first class venue. We try to book a box whenever we can as we prefer the privacy. Look out for the deals on hexes.
