As the alhambra always is, great. Didn't let me down. Great service, very clean and enjoyable trip. Visit the alhambra 2-3 times a year and always is a fantastic trip for the whole family & spectacular shows.

Went to see Yes Prime Minister in April 2013. Clearly not as funny as the original but decent entertainment. Had seats in the Stalls which while providing decent leg room, were very uncomfortable.

Last night I recalled why I had stopped going here many many years ago!
We went to see "High Society" and were in the Dress Circle on row A.
My legs were killing me, my partners legs were cramping up big style and that was on row A, can't think what the other rows would be like....oh yes I can.....unbearable, well for us anyway.

I am sorry to say but the attendance was very poor on that evening, less than half full I would say.
Some did not come back after half time either!
I had friends who said the same about Tuesdays performance.

A great shame really as nearly all the cast put heart and soul in to it.
A special mention for the young girl, she was brilliant.
This is not one of Cole Porters most popular shows, so maybe that was why the attendance was not as good as I would of expected.

The theatre itself is quite lovely, sort of quaint.
It seems to of had a cosmetic makeover in the bar areas and there is a restaurant as well on one floor.
All very clean and pristine looking, the bar areas lack the character though that one would expect at a place of this age.
Too modern, wipe clean table tops and bright lighting.
Personal taste in the end to what you like....

I must say that the whole place was very clean and all staff we came into contact with were polite and an asset to the place.
I wish them well.

This theatre stages shows as good as any I have seen in the West End, the seats are well arranged and very comfortable. There is a fine bar and cafe where you can get a pre-ordered drink in the interval, You have an excellent view and audio experience from anywhere in the auditorium. Only dislike, the toilets could do with an upgrade.

One of my favourite theatres. The shows are always good and the theatre is very comfortable. There is a good restaurant as well for a meal before the show which is handy if you are going straight from work. Room to move about on each floor.
