“The full monty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

If you get a chance try to this stage show, it was one of the best shows I have seen. Never laughed so much the cast were brilliant and the story was well presented seeing as they are trying to create a steel works factory, hats off to the production team. It is going to the west end later in the year so if its on near your home town don't miss it.

“Showtime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The newly revamped Marlowe is excellent! Seating better laid out, more bar space at interval time and a really good selection of high quality shows...best outside of the West End

“A lovely revamp of a dated theatre.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Marlowe's new look is well worth the wait. The theatre seems smaller and more intimate, the acoustics are much better. All seats have clear views and they even have booster seats for tots now, a great idea when taking little people to the panto. Well done The Marlowe.

“Marlowe Theatre Canterbury”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A badly designed modern theatre. The seating is poor & uncomfortable with little leg room even for a person of average height. In the stalls there is no centre aisle so everyone in a row has to stand up whenever someone comes to sit in that row. Have also sat in the upper circle in various places but have found the seating difficult. I just pray there will never be a fire there as any less mobile clients seated upstairs would have little hope of escape down the many stairs. Canterbury deserves much better!
