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.

There is no doubt that the building is beautiful and full of character. Also, being the main theatre in Aberdeen all the shows are usually here so you don't have much choice. 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

His majestys theatre is such a beautiful building and is noted to be one of the, if not the most beautiful provincial theatre in UK. I always enjoy going to his majesty's and am... More

Went to see the Jersey Boys on Saturday night which was a big disappointment. Too much speaking and not enough singing which we hoped to hear. We were in the front row of the balcony where we had no leg room. Our knees were pressed up against the barrier and we came away feeling very sore at the end of... More
