“Amazing Theatre.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Love going to the Capitol Theatre for shows. I go regularly. It has an old world charm feeling. Never had a bad seat when ive been there.
Prefer sitting in the stalls.

I've seen many musicals here in the past few years. The decor is impressive and I always enjoy the shows.

“Theatre is more exciting than any show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

The theatre is an extraordinary experience with its gothic style architecture, statues, starry ceilings - it's very special and worth going to a musical there just for the joy of the theatre

“Beautiful building with great shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

A truly beautiful and amazing building, you'd swear that you're outside in an authentic theatre from days gone bye. We've seen several productions here and have loved every one of them. The location makes it a breeze to get to, close to many transport options and hotels.

“The Addams Family - simply brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I would highly recommend going to see this show. John Waters & Chloe Dallimore were outstanding. The Theatre is also close to public transport and you can stay opposite at the Metro hotel. I'd love to see the show again (if I can organise another visit to Sydney from Melbourne!).
