Third visit. Never disappointed. Staff helpful. Bar prices not bad for a theatre. Good choice of bars and restaurants nearby. Walkable from Waverley and Haymarket stations.

Nice old theatre in a good location. We sat in the Grand Circle which was a bit of a squeeze to get in and out of our seats. Also, despite being 5'10" my view was obscured by the man sitting in front of me. However,...More
