“An Amazing Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We went to South Pacific at The Edinburgh Playhouse to the Matinee performance and could not fault the show one bit.

We had a drink before the show and ordered drinks for the interval which were put exactly where we wished.

I had seen the film when I was much younger - a lot younger and went back and back again to seee it.

The show brought back fond memories!!

We had front row stalls - six from the front and had super views and it brought back memories from the past.

Ngana played by Marie-Fra Gbaya/Teoni Halliday and Jerome by Mathis Tchitchiama/Linden Tailfordl were excelent and the children as well.

In fact no member of the cast could be faulted.

In fact the time of 3 hours just flew by and I did have a record of the show (long gone) but was delighted to buy a CD which has now ben played.

I would recommend anyone in Edinburgh to see this show or wherever you are lucky to see it in your town on tour.

A lovely relaxing afternoon. Well worth the money!

“Informative and friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

10.30am twice a week (Tue and Sat) £12.50 (concessions available) for a one hour tour all over the building led by one of the staff who was informative and friendly. There’s quite a bit of climbing up and down narrow stairs. The guide did make the point that the tour is best taken when they have a current show – else the dressing rooms, stage, back stage etc are all empty. See their website for a good illustrated history of the building which claims to be the ‘biggest’ theatre in the UK – 3,000 seats but actually other theatres have a bigger stage but less seats
