Saw Wicked here in October 2013, and was completely amazed by the show. My first time seeing Wicked and the entire production, cast and crew were flawless. Superb!

Excellent show at a beautiful theatre. Staff where friendly and helpful. Beverages a bit pricey but that seems to be the standard in cinema and theatre. Old style theatre beautifully maintained. Loved it and would not hesitate to return

When to see the "Carpenters Story" with my sister and bro in law,back in May.....a wonderful show with all the hits.The girl who played the Karen Carpenter role was absolutely fantastic..she completely "nailed it". A show I would certainly go and see again.

I recently visited the Palace Theatre to see Penn & Teller as a birthday present. The show itself was a great experience I'd recommend to anyone interested in the art of magic, illusions and comedy, but I ended up finding it quite difficult to watch from the not so Grand Tier. Having not done any research on the venue and... More

By pure coincidence we were in Manchester to assist to a concert in the Arena, and while walking around in the city we saw this theater, and that day they were presenting THE BEATLES LET IT BE! We were in a celebration mood, and we like their music (just like many millions people around the world), so we bought the... More

We went to see Penn & Teller. I'd not been to this theatre before, we booked seats in the stalls. They were very good, comfy and plenty of leg room. I had booked an isle seat just in case but there was no need and I could have happily sat anywhere in the row. The staff were genuinely very helpful.... More

We went to see a performance of Avenue Queue. I was impressed with the building and staff. Given the age of the venue the seating wasn't bad. I would advise that if you book the stalls, go for row K. Row L seems to be where the elevation of the seating ends and it is on the same level as... More

I have now seen Avenue Q four times - twice in New York, once in London and last night in my hometown. It is hilarious - genuinely laugh out loud funny. It is second only to The Book of Mormon for riotous laughter (same writer btw) It is somewhat crude, very adult, there are seen of graphic puppet nudity but... More

This was a truly hilarious and fantastic show. It brought so much more to an entertainment value than I had initially expected. The amount of effort the cast put in, and everything they did along with everything the puppets did was all in all phenomenal. The changes between characters were so discreet and went unnoticed, and throughout there was plenty... More

The Palace Theatre is a great place to visit if you like watching plays/musicals/comedies etc... We go regulary as the shows shown there are very good, enjoyable ones and the tickets are cheap enough! The whole of the Palace theatre is neat And tidy and it is generally a lovely place to visit. Would recommend to anyone.
