“Great theatre to see the actors up close at”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I've been over 20 times in the last 10 years. The stage is surrounded by seating on 3 sides so you really feel close to the action. It also attracts big names. Best I've seen was Richard III with Kenneth Branagh back in 2002, but also saw Othello in 2012 with Clarke Peters and Dominic West from 'The Wire'!

My favourite venue for plays I think.

Incidentally, the pub/restaurant Crucible Corner next door is pretty good for pre play meals.

“Theatre in the round”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

If you have never watched a production using theatre in the round then I would recommend a trip to The Crucible. The productions have to be staged very differently than in traditional theatres and this adds an amazing extra dimension. The view from all seats is also very clear and the actors feel very close. Productions staged here tend to be of extremely high quality. I have just watched My Fair Lady, which was outstanding and the staging breathtaking. If you have mobility issues it will be necessary to specify at the time of booking as nearly all seats require a descent of steps to access them.

“My Fair Lady”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This show is on until the 26th January and it was two hours 55 minutes of 5 star entertainment. The singing and acting could not be faulted...it made us both laugh and cry..well worth the £30 ticket price

Watched My Fair Lady last night. Excellent production in excellent theatre. Packed house but no problem waiting or getting drinks either before or in the interval.

We went to see this brilliant show - my son Louis Maskell was in it!
