“Lovely grand old theatre”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was at Kings for '9 to 5' The Musical last weekend and it was fantastic. The theatre is a great size, not too big and impossing, but small enough to feel quite intimate with good accoustics. There was the ususal crush to leave but it was well organized and quick to empty. I really liked this theatre and will go back for other shows.

“Fab Show”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Went to see 9-5 The Musical and it was very funny and a great night out.
It was as good as any westend show that I have seen.
I must agree with another review by Sheilacraw the drinks were very expensive at the bar.
Great cast and songs.

“A night at the theatre in Glasgow”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I decided to book tickets to see "I Tommy" the play about the rise and fall of Tommy Sheriden. It was a marvellous production with convincing characters and slik quick changes, with only 5 in the cast and most of them playing more than one role. The theatre was busy, and has the ornate ceilings and lights of a by-gone era. The evening was well worth the cost of the tickets at around £27 each......one small down side was the costly £3 ice cream at the interval for a very small tub...I suppose this is theatre prices in the city.....

“Expensive drinks”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Went to see 9-5 very good show although the auditorium was very hot which made the whole experience uncomfortable . Drinks were vastly overpriced a small bottle of wine costing £5.95 which was daylight robbery to say the least .
