I saw 'Sister Act' and enjoyed it very much Good seating and good view of the stage. My only gripe is the neighbouring multi-storey car park where We had to queue to get into and also out of. Very slow. We will park at Highcross next time and walk to the Curve.

Myself and my sisters went along to see The Wedding Singer, it was absolutely amazing, the whole cast did an excellent job from the stars to the smaller parts, well actually they were all stars, the music and songs were good and plenty of laughs along the way, I was actually surprised to see Ruth Maddock in the cast as...

Whether in the main theatre or the studio the experience is a good one. Comfortable seating, plenty of leg room, air con/hearing good. Cafe is very expensive and extremely slow service, even when not busy.

Thy shows may be good, but the building inside is not nice. The outside would be OK if it was in a different place.

Curve has some wonderful features, but also some severe drawbacks. The productions are patchy, some are outstanding, such as last night's The Wedding Singer, well staged and presented, and good value, whilst others lack quality and are excessively priced. The overall layout of the theatre should create a great atmosphere, but too often it is lacking, it doesn't have the... More

Been to the curve a few times and I find no matter what seats you have you get a good view we have just watched the wedding singer there and was on the last row v but did not have any problem with the view. I like that if you ask for a drink in the interval they will have... More
