The New Alexandra Theatre, commonly known as the Alex, is a theatre on Station Street in Birmingham, England.The theatre currently seats 1,371 and hosts a busy programme of touring drama, West End shows and stand-up comedy. It was the home of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company between 1990 and 1997. In January 2006 the Alexandra Theatre changed management once again, to be managed by Live Nation, a company that specialised in concert promotion and large venue operations. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group, and after a minor refurbishment the group renamed the theatre the New Alexandra Theatre.

Sitting 6 rows from the front of the stage, had clear view of stage at £55 a ticket, not cheap either. Strangely never took to the Dirty Dancing show at all. The original 1987 film is way better. Only “Penny” character looked like film character,...More

I found that because the theatre is much smaller than hippodrome etc you should have a good view from anywhere in the theatre.
