“Great Venue & Production - Not Ideal for Less Mobile”
Review of ADC Theatre

Attraction details
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We attended the opening night production of The Producers at the ADC. Full marks for the show - the actors acted their hearts out. The staff are friendly and helpful. We'd booked our tickets on-line and collected them a couple of hours before the show - worth doing as the queue is quite big immediately before the performance. As it was our first visit, we didn't know the ropes about getting in and out of the auditorium. There's a lift to the theatre but you have to climb steps to reach your seats. We'd booked seats at the end of an aisle for easier access but should have booked them at the other end - right side when you're facing the stage. That way, you avoid so much of going against the flow at the interval and end of the show. The atmosphere was good. People had travelled from Surrey to support some of those involved in the production. We'll attend more performances here and choose our seats more carefully.

We try and watch something at the ADC at least every other month. The performance standard often matches London West End, but at shabby prices (typically £12 a seat). The theatre's Patron is Sondheim, so there is a at least one of his wonderful musicals performed each term, but the repertoire ranges from comedy to cutting edge drama, so something for everyone.

With around 100 seats, it's an intimate experience. The bar is dirt cheap and entertainment in itself.

The ADC is a small intimate theatre with good sound. Th seats are not overly comfortable but the ambience is very good. The bar wasn't expensive and a hosted a local ale, Marcus Aurelius from th Milton Brewery. Polite efficient service.
No booking fee which is a bonus and very reasonably priced tickets for Wyrd Sisters..

It's not as big as a lot of theatres, but the enthusiasm of the student actors and staff was infectious and great fun! The drinks were cheap too :-)

Better than just OK it is a very small but comfortable theatre with quite a nice bar area, but not one of the top theatres.
