5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Brilliant performance, faultless!

All the cast were so professional, excellent musicians and singers.

Close your eyes and it could have been Buddy Holly singing.

“Thank God there wasn't a fire!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Diane & I visited 5-7-14 for Dawn French's stand-up show - very good by the way - we arrived in good time and made use of the entirely adequate facilities (bar, toilets: both well appointed) before making our way to our seats. The major issue arose after the show when it took an absolute age to get out of the building - I've never experienced such congestion!

“Great shows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I go to the Alhambra theatre quite often with my sister and friends. A really great venue for shows of all different types from top west end musicals, plays and ballets .The only downside is the seats are a bit uncomfortable I think they need re upholstering .The restaurant is very good and serves really nice food but the drinks are a bit pricey .

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We have been twice in the last few weeks - firstly to see war horse and then today to see rock of ages. Both productions were brilliant in their completely different ways. The Alhambra is a great venue - seats are comfy and the staff are always helpful. Pay more to get good seats - it's worth every penny!
