This was the first time we had ever been to this theatre. It retains all the elegance of those old theatres from the late 1800s. The production we saw - The Belle's Stratagem - had beautiful costuming, outstanding acting, and a great story. We went...More

Third visit. Never disappointed. Staff helpful. Bar prices not bad for a theatre. Good choice of bars and restaurants nearby. Walkable from Waverley and Haymarket stations.
