“The Lion King”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

A truly spectacular performance from beginning to end although we did have to rush to get our train home. Only one negative point the price of soft drinks/water and sweet were expensive £2.50 for a small bottle of 7up, best option is to nip to tesco for your drinks and treats.

“Lion King”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My daughter bought the tickets as a Xmas present, Row K in the Grand tier. Unfortunately, too little leg room and far too high up we couldn't see the heads of some of the animals.The show was fantastic though. Such a shame that we were sat with over 500 schoolchildren in the Grand Tier . We were inbetween two of the school groups and the teenage girls in the row behind never stopped talking. Very disappointing.
Think it is very bad of the booking office do this!

“Excellent Show, Shame About Theatre Staff”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We went to see the show on Friday 27th December. Theatre was ridiculously hot with no facility for allowing fresh air in. People were dripping and stripping off due to the heat. The Duty Manager was rude and unhelpful and not in any position to be able to do anything about it. Apparently the heating is set a month in advance so had been set for Winter, despite the fact that it was 12 degrees outside. Excellent show but would have been better in an alternative venue.

“Favorite Theatre in Manchester”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Great advertising so you always know whats on, making it easy to get tickets,online or via ticket box office situated next door. so east to find and easy to get to with being on the edge of Manchester Town Centre. Inside is easy to navogate and drinks and snacks are reasonably priced.. Always a great atmosphere.
