Visited this theatre for the first time - last minute decision so the only seats available were in the back row of the stalls SEATS 1/2/3. BEWARE These seats have restricted viewing (although not sold as such ) the floor of the balcony cuts off the top of the stage. So if anything is happening higher up the stage you... More

Now getting excellent shows to the area coming further north than Edinburgh or Glasgow. Seating gives ideal view of stage no matter where. Can order interval drinks from very well priced bar.

Fantastic show! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Alexandra Burke has an amazing voice. Would not get seats in upper circle again though as I suffer vertigo and it was a bit steep for me.

Fantastic. Superb show straight from London's West End. The London productions which come to the Granite City are so well received and always five star.

However it doesn't excuse the lack of effort. The upper circle and balcony areas are tired and need refreshed. The toilets were out of order resulting in long... More

Brilliant show was well worth going to Aberdeen to see this. Only problem was too high up, but managed to get shifted, which was thanks to the staff of the theatre

Saw the Jersey Boys on Friday night. Seat was pretty grim, I could see the stage okay, but if anybody was up on the landing I could only see the from their knees down. Luckily I have seen the show elsewhere, but it was still disappointing, considering the price of the seats. You are also supposed to get £2 off... More
