Another visit to this stunningly beautiful theatre. It is quite small but perfectly formed. The show itself was excellent. Very entertaining. The bar staff work wonders in serving so many so efficiently. Well done. If in Aberdeen this place is a must.

We recently visited to see ‘Evita’ and it is such a stunningly beautiful theatre. Though quite large it does have a cosy and more intimate feel than some others. We were seated in the dress circle and would comment that the seats to the edge...More
