“has become more diverse and user-friendly now”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Having previously had a 'high-end' intellectual reptation, I would say that the New Vic has been forced to move with the times and make itself much more accessible not only to schools groups, but also students, OAP's etc Some of the productions now represent the ex-industrial working-class Potteries locality as they should do, yes there are still classics , Dickens, Shakespeare etc but you are also just as likely to find a jazz night, a folk night or even solo performances not exacltly comedy nights but bordering on humour , well done !

“One of the best theatres...”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I've been to dozens of theatres, but I love the New Vic, it's got stuff that you just don't appreciate until you go elsewhere, I know this sounds like something simple but it has a car park (I've been to dozens of other theatres non with a car park, it's so convenient it also has a lovely cafe that sells home made lovely food and a great little pub area, all in all everything you need for a smashing night out. I've seen hundreds of plays here and will continue to do so... Keep it up New Vic, we love you!!
