So looking forward to this production however very disappointed at sound quality, especially when Poirot was talking. The accent made it unintelligible.

At one point, despite being asked not to, a man in front of me was using his phone to video the show. The staff soon addressed the matter and dealt with it in a pleasant and efficient manner. The show was great, real laugh... More

The Inside of his majestys theatre was once described by Billy Connely as "the inside of a faberge egg" and not surprising as it is a beautiful theatre.

Lovely theatre. Great for a n evening out with family and friends. A good variety of performances offered. Avoid Upper Circle seats - not enough leg room.

Great location for theatre shows - the theatre is very grand and beautiful and i would recommed a visit. Also ghost tours available sometimes around October due to unfortunate passings during it's historical years. worth going!

Great gem within the city of aberdeen with beautiful architecture. The staff couldnt have been friendlier and I was also impressed with the half time ice cream. Myself and my wife went to see top hat and it was amazing!

This place has always been top of the list for service, though as a member I don't always get the seats I want. I prefer the stalls as I have difficulty with stairs so iam often disappointed missing a show. Staff are really helpful showing us to our seats. Great place to go.
