Being local, I have been to this theatre many times but it does lack something.
On arrival, it is very difficult to get to the bar and the coffee counter and near on impossible to get a seat on the ground floor once you have a drink in hand, meaning juggling bags, coats, drinks, tickets..........The service is also painfully slow.
I was pleased with my glass of wine this time opting for Rose and would hazard a guess that they have changed their buyer or supplier as the wine is normally not fit for human consumption.
The overall experience here should be one of pure enjoyment especially with the price of the tickets, which I thought to be high considering there were no 'big names'. I knew nobody in the show at all, but it doesn't happen and that needs to be addressed.
This was a birthday present to my sister and the show was amazing and the dancing outstanding although I agree that it did falter in places.
To those who arrive from out of town and want to eat, don't bother with here; Plymouth has a plethora of really good restaurants in easy walking distance or a short drive away and go for a drink in The Bank if pushed for time and wanting a tipple before the show.
