“beautiful theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Have been here several times now, the last occasion being for "Soul Sister", an excellent production detailing the life of tina Turner. Very Very good, it was such a shame thatvthere was so few people there.
The theatre is beautiful with excellent facilities.
This time we were sat in the stalls which are very roomy however previously i have sat on the upper balcony whic is very tight and can be a bit of a squash.
The theatre is in the centre of the city but is easy to access with ample parking nearby.

“An excellent theatre.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I am a tall chap, and when I go to the theatre I usually end up with convulsions in my knees afterwards, but at the Alhambra I was fine thanks to the great leg room. Alhambras got the old fashioned charm and granduer but it isn't dated. Nice ambient surroundings and definetly worth a shot.

“Beautiful theatre with great uk shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Went to see Derren Brown on his Infamous tour. Brilliant show which was supported by this classy and traditional theatre setting. Appreciated being able to order interval drinks before the show but twenty minutes was not enough time to drink them. Also, the queues for the loos were out the front door. Wish places like this would start to provide enough lavs for the ladies as I almost missed the second half (and had to leave my G&T). Really love this theatre though and think Yorkshire should be proud of its gorgeous theatres!
