The theatre is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of bars/restaurants and parking We sat in the circle, excellent view. Leg room is limited but I would say this is normal for old theatres. Wicked was wicked!

Wicked was truly truly fantastic. Amazing performances and not a single obvious flaw or stumble in the entire show. Amazing costumes, sets and lighting. Just fantastic start to finish a true masterpiece. Congrats to all involved!! Alex Moisan

The Title of my review is WICKED and the show was absolutely WICKED, if you want a good night at the Alhambra then if you can get a ticket for Wicked buy it and you will have a great evening.

We had cheap seats in the upper circle but ended up next floor down. The views and sound was good. We both had a good time and will go again. The Alhambra is a nice old building and well worth a visit. It's got all the usual bars and prices.

I have been to many different shows at the Alhambra and have always enjoyed them all greatly. Seats in the upper circle are good but not so much if you have a problem with heights. Always lovely staff and helpful.
