Overview
More
"The Gate Theatre was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammóir. From it's very beginnings, the Gate offered Dublin audiences a way into the worlds of European and American theatre, as well as classics from the modern and Irish repertoire. A space rich with history, it was at the Gate that Orson Welles, James Mason, Geraldine Fitzgerald and Michael Gambon began their prodigious acting careers, and it has served as an incubator of ground-breaking creative talent for almost 90 years now. Award-winning director Selina Cartmell has served as Artistic Director of the Gate since April 2017. Her first season “The Outsider” continues into the second half of 2018 with shows including; Stephen Sondheim’s dark and thrilling musical ASSASSINS, the world premiere of Roddy Doyle’s The Snapper, Shakespeare’s Hamlet featuring Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga in a production directed by Yaël Farber, and a festive return for our acclaimed The Great Gatsby."

Went to see The Great Gatsby here, amongst other plays, and the interior grandeur of the place really lends to the atmosphere. It really is beautiful.

It's just so lovely. It's not too big. The new extention has a lovely eatery. I've never had my view obstructed by columns, people's heads yes, but columns no!

A bunch of unemployed dancers, singers, and would be musicians do not make a musical, in fact the exact opposite. Mr Sondheim would have fit. Avoid at all costs. Our seats cost $20/minute each. I can’t believe The Gate has got to this. It’s worse...More

On arriving, we were 10 minutes early for the bar to open. We were told we could wait outside (in the cold) until 7.45. This is ridiculous. Why couldn't we just go up and have a drink? Once we did get in we found the...More
