We had a terrible time finding the theater, but the production was great (Come From Away). A lovely theater with friendly staff. But the bathrooms are very, very small!

I had a great seat in the circle - great view over the whole stage. Toilet queues overly long. Bar area super small. Staff very friendly.

Come from Away is a great show and we enjoyed it a lot. This made up for the theatre which has tight seats for anyone over 5'10". If you're tall, book an aisle seat so you can stretch your legs out once in awhile. The...More

No doubt Come From Away is a stunning show and well worth the ticket price. However this theatre is way behind regional theatres in terms of facilities, albeit it was nice to be offered 2 pints of iced tap water on a very hot day...More

The show was phenomenal but this is a review for the theatre... Not the best theatre but perfectly ok! Front row circle means you have the safety bar in line of view so had to sit forward the whole time. Minimal toilet facilities. Very friendly...More
