Stunning visual effects, a great story well told and vibrant acting and singing kept the audience entralled. It isn't often that at the end of a show you have audience member squeuing up to buy a copy of the programme - a newspaper style publication with information giving the background and historical information as well as details about the production.

Had lunch here and the food is lovely but I do think that over £6 for a jacket potato and beans it is quite expensive. But overall it is a relaxing experience with a variety of options.

This is an excellent theatre that has some amazing plays available to see. Views in the courtyard theatre are great wherever you sit. Every kind of play from kids stuff, comedy and of course the Opera North. There's also a great restaurant that serves delicious food plus a smaller snack bar that has cakes, sandwiches and hot drinks. There's also... More

An emotional well written and produced play . A dramatic and emotional performance by the entire cast but in particular the actresses who played the two sisters. The Community Choir was very moving and brought a tear to my eye on several occasions. I would suggest this is a not to be missed play to anyone interested in the history... More

Despite living in leeds all my life and passing this place every day, I had never been, so I decided to give it a go and got me and my girlfriend tickets to see "into the woods". The theatre itself is a great venue with its own bar and no matter where you sit you get a great view of... More

Fantastic collaboration with Opera North - superb singing, very talented cast. Cleverly woven together, dark, but humorous.
