All was good. Enjoyed the show and there was plenty to choose from to eat after the show even at midnight.

“Lion King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

My first theatre production I have been to, and I am now hooked. The Capitol Theatre is fantastic, and looks amazing. Loved it. Will definitely go there for more shows.

“great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Watched Wicked here awhile ago and the theatre was just fantastic!
The seats were of comfortable size and there was a small food bar from what I remember where you could buy snacks while you watched, the theatre stage itself looks like it had several sections which contributed greatly to the play and the general feel of how involved the audience are.

“Lovely old theatre - full of character of a bygone era”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We planned our trip to see The Lion King early after the tickets were released, it also coincided with a birthday celebration within our family. We had tickets in the third row (family of 5) and had the benefit of seeing all the facial expression of the actors and were amazed by the costumes. The venue has great architecture and you can truly forget about the outside world for a few hours. Capitol Theatre is an easy walk from Central Railway Station which saves taxi fares, plenty of nearby accommodation.

“Fabulous Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

The Capitol is a brilliant location for the fantastic musical The Lion King. We had seats in one of the boxes, and if you can manage to secure these seats, I can thoroughly recommend them. The view of the stage was brilliant and there is so much room! Also the package includes a delicious box of yummy goodies and a lovely glass of bubbly! (Plus instant access to the toilets at interval!) Staff here are very friendly and helpful and there are plenty of places to purchase food and drinks. The choc-tops were really yummy! A wonderful Sydney theatre.
