“Showcase of Filipino Talents”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2015

This is our cultural events place. Countless of local and international shows have been presented in this theatre, and it has served it's purpose well. But, it will fail in comparison to the latest and modern theaters of other countries. Although kept clean and maintained properly, it has lag far, in terms of technology. Time to upgrade please.

“Still grand but needs some serious redevelopment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2015

I love this place! You can still feel how exciting it is to step in to this grand theater. Most international musical productions are staged here which makes it a hotspot for theater fans, local shows are also staged at the main theater and the little theaters within the building.

Unfortunately, due to its age, it's already showing some wear and tear. A redevelopment of the interiors as well as exteriors are needed. Also, balcony stairs and seats are so steep that one wrong move might make you fall to the pit below.

“ccp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

The place where thousands of Ballet shows has been shown. Home of the Artists both local and foreign. This place was memorable for me as this is where most of my childhood was spent for my ballet classes, rehearsals, recitals etc. Leely it has been home to many broadway shows like miss saigon, phantom of the opera, stomp, and recently cinderella
