After all the hype over many years we finally went to see this performance. The cast including all of the extras were excellent but for the life of me I never seen such a boring first half and this was down to the storyline. 3 persons around me did not turn up for the second half which was a shame...

A nice theatre with plenty of character, however if your tall the seating is quite tight. We went to watch Jesus Christ Superstar which was good but very intense.

As a venue I think it's a warm and friendly venue. Yes sometimes you wonder if it's cramped or steep but I feel due to the design most seats get a good view. Staff are friendly . Nice small bars on each floor and never too corded to get a drink and fair prices. Well located venue close to the... More

I find it hard to credit the awfully unkind reviews of two reviewers of the Solid Sixties show, in particular their remarks about Billy J Kramer. Perhaps something spectacular went wrong on the evening in Manchester, but when I saw the show a few days later in Bristol, it was a thoroughtly enjoyable evening. Billy J Kramer did certainly not...

Cat in the hat by Dr Seuss was brought to life on stage. The experience of a brilliant book performed on stage was nothing spectacular but it was exactly as it should have been - a fun and somewhat interactive theatre experience for the young. As an adult I was left thinking like a director; I'm sure they could've done... More

Had an excellent night at The Producers, but think I'd probably try a different seating area next time. It's easy to get to as it's just opposite Oxford Road station, but once you're inside it's like a rabbit warren! We were sitting in the stalls (more about the seats later), which you have to duck down a fairly narrow staircase... More

I went to see Blood Brothers a few weeks back on spec, so the only tickets available were the top tier. A reasonable rate of Β£10, the show was good but I couldn't wait to get out I was so uncomfortable and I'm only 5'6. I can't imagine how taller people got on.
