Address
Neighborhood: Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Christmas Cracker

Visited to experience the "Edinburgh version of Christmas Carol". A clever adaptation of the traditional Xmas story based on fear and redemption of Mr Scrooge.
Very enjoyable production incorporating the "tail" excuse the pun , of the faithful dog and his dying master.

An Edinburgh Christmas Carol
Dec 2019 • Couples
Superb show with emotive performances from the whole car. Some delightful contemporary nods as well a few Edinburghcentric Easter eggs. Ebeneezer. Scroggie would approve. Particular kudos for the puppeteers. A joyful experience in a glorious theatre.

An Edinburgh Christmas Carol - FANTASTIC!
Dec 2019
All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the performance, which was made even more interesting because of the Edinburgh connections and jokes. The use of puppets for the dog, Bobby, and Tiny Tim were fascinating. All the actors were great, but a special mention must go to Crawford Logan in his role as Ebenezer Scrooge. The interior of the building was stunning in its grandeur and splendid-ness considering it is a small theatre compared to some in town! If you are seated in the galleries, be sure to go to the stage level during intermission and look up, way up, at the magnificent chandelier and amazing architecture. As well, the seats were comfortable and the box office staff and ushers were very welcoming. All-in-all, I would heartily recommend this theatre and this show for a great night out in Edinburgh.

You're going to see a show and not the place, but...

...the staff were not just helpful, but pro-actively helpful, the seats were comfortable, the interior was fascinating, and the play that I went to see (Solaris) was immersive. In short, I enjoyed the whole experience.

Comfortable and friendly.

Attractive historic decor with its glass extension out onto the street.
May be lost behind the "Usher Hall" but worth visiting.
Decent well spaced stalls seating, cute box seating.

What a splendid place!!!
Oct 2019 • Family
I love this building, with its old grand dame feel. I think David Greig has been doing some amazingly courageous work there, and I always enjoy going to see shows (although I find the stalls, middle to back, a lot more comfortable than upstairs seats as the visuals always seem better) and he atmosphere. The bar feels small and cosy, although it is a few steps downstairs so slightly difficult with mobility issues.

Glorious old theatre with warm atmosphere
Jun 2019 • Family
Flew up from south coast of England to see a new production of The Duchess of Malfi. Delighted with the show (shocking but brilliantly done) but also with this beautiful building. The decor is sumptuous and it is in excellent condition. It was a real treat and prices were very reasonable.

In the land of the local hero.
Apr 2019 • Family
I felt privileged to share the experience of the Local Hero musical with people who really wanted to be there. The joy of it was expressed in a standing rhythmic handclap at the end. Many thanks to everyone in the Lyceum on 20 April.
