“Comfortable theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were recently in Aberdeen and caught a play by Charles Dickens in honor of his 200 birthday. It was a great performance of a real old fashioned "horror" story. We had a great time. The theater is easy to locate, the seats are comfortable the acoustics and fine. it was a real treat.

“Spoiled by the volume.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Just back from seeing Starlight Express at His Majesty's Theatre Aberdeen. Having seen the show three times in London years ago I was really looking forward to the experience. The costumes, skating and 3d effects were great but the show was complete spoiled by the volume of the music. It was difficult to hear what the words were, and it actually hurt the ears. My husband watched the first part with his fingers in his ears, and left at the interval. Feel really cheated as we had spent out for a weekend's accommodation as well as the tickets so it wasn't a cheap trip. If you're planning to go take your earplugs!!!

“Lovely venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We loved this venue! We saw the show "Starlight Express" and were delighted with the performance. It is a beautiful theatre that is well laid out allowing for quick seating and exiting. We thought it wierd to see people eating and drinking and selling ice-cream in the theatre. It was not disruptive and no mess seemed to be left! Well done.
