Beautiful classic interior, prim and proper as it should be. Seats are comfortable, we sat in the dress circle - great view and sound. We saw the amazing Les Mis - just a perfect show at the perfect venue , loved it. The themed merchandise are grossly overpriced, but I guess that is to be expected. We loved that you... More

Saw Les Miserables at the Capitol Theatre in July 2015, and loved it! The theatre actually is quite small compared to others we've been to, which meant the performers were close and the sound was good. The cast and sets were amazing. The seats were comfortable, with wide aisles and several wide doors for ease of getting in and out.... More

The Capitol Theatre is one of the best stage show venues in the world, presenting wonderful musicals. We saw a superb production of "Les Miserables". A show not to miss. So professional and well presented. Excellent Actors and Musicians.

I went to see Les Miserables, my favourite musical, and was absolutely spellbound. Strong talent in the two main leads left me with goosebumps in all the right places! Innovative sets bought the whole show together and the beauty of the theatre itself was the cherry on top.

We were amazed that someone in charge of merchandise for the Australian production of Les Miserables thinks it appropriate to bundle the programme (free in UK and US and in many other Australian theatres) with a glossy photo book which should be sold separately. $25 for a programme because staff were not allowed to sell it separately. All done in... More

Blown away by the whole night. Enjoyed the feel of the Theatre, the history and the decor. Took us back in time. The performance was wonderful, enthralling, engaging, even for the two teenage girls who have never been to the Theatre. The snacks and wine lovely. The staff helpful. Will definitely be back.
