“Regional Theatre of the Year - Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Quite rightly voted best regional theatre two years in a row. The theatre itself is superb, with great views anywhere in the auditorium. The productions are varied, from populist musicals to Samuel Beckett. The classical music concerts in the Studio are also superb. A great asset for Sheffield.

“Great theatre!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Excellent facilities!

The seat layout on the website can be deceptive - we wanted a seat close to an exit but ended up at the wrong end of a row!

“All inclusive venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

I have visited Sheffield crucible theatre many times, but never done a review, thought now is the time, the theatre has a unique setting, seats situated around the stage, audiences feel part of the production, particularly with musicals, the feeling of belonging with the cast if superb. All seats have good visibility, obviously front maybe 10 rows are the best, but non will disappoint. Nice bar area for pre performance drinks.

“Oliver - excellent show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Sheffield Theatres offering of the musical is excellent. Great cast, good scenery that flowed easily and didn't stop the action. Nancy, Bumble and Fagin were particularly good and well cast.
the children were well rehearsed. The choreography was excellent and effective in the confines of the circular stage. It was nice to see an Oliver that was a little more dark and gritty than the usual fluffy productions that crop up. Well done to all concerned.

“First class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Perfect place to see a performance. Closed in so you feel like you are at the front pretty much everywhere where you can sit.
