We found Cinderella a bit disappointing this year and slightly boring I’m sorry to say. We come every year and this year we just found it not as funny and a bit more serious. Bring back the funny jokes and take away the serious aspects...More

Excellent venue in easy walking distance from city centre and public transport, including trams. Uniquely designed seating structure allowing a good view wherever you sit. Great range of dramas, dance, music and comedy amongst other things, available throughout the year. Went to see Mark Steele...More

We’ve been coming to the Playhouse panto for 30 years and were disappointed this year. Perhaps it was because it is after the new year, the audience was much smaller, but the cast seemed to be going through the motions at times. We got the...More

So sorry to say that this years panto really wasn't as good as last years. First half was lackluster, poorly scripted and directed. Second half was much improved....but the "he's behind you" moment sums it up....effort, it's a simply scene but we needed more direction....More

Had not been to the Playhouse before. It was a spur of the moment decision during a recent visit to Nottingham. What a hidden gem. The theatre, staff and the play(the Cherry orchard) are first class. Would certainly visit again when in the area. Had...More

A very atmospheric and moving production of 'The Cherry Orchard', especially the first half which was done to perfection. Both the tragic and the comic elements of the play were enacted well without jarring. The acting was convincing and at times incredibly moving. A couple...More
