“Glorious theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Beautiful theatre which has been modernised but kept the traditional appearance of this entertainment venue.
Apart from the boxes (and I've rarely found a theatre in which the boxes give a good view of the whole stage) there isn't a bad seat in the house. Friendly staff always available to help. Lovely atmosphere throughout.
Only niggle - as with many theatres there just aren't enough ladies loos!

“English Touring Opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Very comfortable small theatre. Two excellently produced, well directed, and splendid early (17th C.) operas, beautifully played and sung.

“Regency Splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I love this theatre designed by Nash, it is truly beautiful. We are frequent visitors and usually see 3 or 4 plays in a season. The quality of the productions ia excellent and often play here pre-London. My favourite seats are in the stalls as the seats are well pitched I find I get a good view. The front row is not advisable as there is little legroom, not a problem for a shorty like me, but my husband found it uncomfortable.
