Owner description: The Theatre Royal Plymouth is the largest and best attended regional producing theatre in the UK and the leading promoter of theatre in the South West. There are two distinctive performance spaces; The Lyric and The Drum, and a new workshop and performance space, The Lab, will open in October 2013.The range of work presented and produced is incredibly extensive, including regular collaborations with leading theatre companies in the UK and beyond. The programme includes major touring drama, musical productions, leading opera and dance. The Theatre Royal Plymouth also produces and presents new plays and has built a national reputation for the quality of its programme and innovative work in The Drum, winning the prestigious Peter Brook award. New musicals and larger scale drama are co-produced for The Lyric, often with commercial or subsidised partners and many productions tour nationally or transfer to the West End. The Theatre Royal Plymouth provides an exceptional Creative Learning programme with a focus on engaging young and disadvantaged communities. The award-winning theatre production and learning centre, TR2, contains unrivalled set, costume, prop-making and rehearsal facilities.

Reviewed March 27, 2014

We saw the Lion King which was a truly great spectacle helped by the very well positioned and comfortable seating we had. Have no negative comments whatsoever and we will be booking again for another musical in the near future

“Opera Visit”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Thought the WNO's La Traviata wonderful! In other years on our way out, we are able to pick up a flyer telling us which operas we can see the following year. But not this year! One would think it would be good advertising. The Box Office area was then closed and the person we asked did not know, which was unfortunate.
In the new sandwich area, can everyone speak English well?
Might ginger ice creams be an option in the intermissions next year, please!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, we’re pleased that you enjoyed the performance of La traviata and will feedback your comments to Welsh National Opera. Regarding the flier – sometimes the print for their following visit is available to pick up in the foyer, this is not always the case as the programme isn’t always confirmed 12 months in advance. We hope to be releasing details of next season in the near future – please do keep an eye on our website. I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean by “In the new sandwich area, can everyone speak English well?” – do feel free to email us with clarification and we will try to answer your question. Regarding ginger flavour ice creams – we will pass on your comments to our Food and Beverages department for their consideration. Finally, we wondered if you had mistakenly given your visit a One Star review? As far as we can tell, you very much enjoyed the performance and your only concern was the lack of print advertising WNO’s forthcoming programme. Please do let us know if we have misunderstood your concerns.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for your review! It is great to see our patrons making use of the restaurant pre-show and then coming back to their table in the interval for drinks and pudding. We hope that you will return soon to try some more desserts!
