Reviewed January 23, 2013

Now fully rebuilt, this is a great, modern, accessible theatre. The seating is very comfortable and few restricted seats.

Reviewed January 19, 2013

Today we visuted the marlowe theatre and how pleased we are we all did. Fantastically profestional staff brilliant performers. The cafe was reasonably priced and lovely food to. Toilets were spotlessly clean despite over 1000 people there at one time. We will be back.

“Can't beat the panto”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Another great performance in the newly built theatre. Kiosk is a bit over the top, so If you can smuggle your refreshments in more the better.
