We are going to see The Twits this Christmas with our son & are looking forward to it. The prices for drinks can be a little expensive but are comparative to similar theatres... More

An excellent and highly entertaining show. High energy as you would expect. It has most of the songs you expect performed well. Riszo was very good. Slightly disappointed by the lack of connection with the lead 'Danny'. He is a talented dancer but not the 'fonz' type icon we have come to expect in this role. Overall it is a... More

After visiting the curve last night we was very impressed with the theatre, its big, classy and lots of leaflets about upcoming shows. The musical it's self was good, characters were spot on only problem is the story line wasn't very clear? Different to the movie we didn't completely fall in love with Danny, as it wasn't clear that he... More

The Curv management provides excellent shows for a wide range of tastes, ancient, modern, high brow, low brow. There is more than one auditorium because of the design of the building. The Curv refers to the very modern glass curve of the front façade. The interior is like a drum within a drum. If you remember giant gas holders this... More

We have attended a number of shows at the curve most recently Pride and Prejudice.The seats provide good support and are comfortable. The layout of the theatre could throw you although the signage is good. We have always found the staff to be helpful and courteous. The only let down and it is a minor irritation which says more about... More
