Bought tickets for my sisters birthday to see Aladdin. Caught train from Lidcombe to Central then a short walk to the Capitol. Had lunch at the Capitol Thai next door as we didn't want to walk around in the rain. Always love the Capitol it has so much history and virtually the only magnificent thearte left in Sydney. The only... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to see Aladdin on Saturday night 18 Feb'17. What an extremely fabulous and colourful production. The set really was outstanding, particularly the Cave of Wonders. This brought back a lot of memories when our daughter was younger. Highly recommended for any age group. The humour that was injected was also witty and very... More

Can't imagine a better venue for Aladdin. From the moment we approached the door, the ambiance felt like you were walking into the world of the Agrabah. Best venue we've visited for a performance. The staff were also quite friendly and helpful adding to the experience. The only downside was the lack of space in seating - seemed smaller than... More

Beautiful theatre with great views from all seats. Don't worry if you are booking left or right of the stage. The only slight issue was the limited range of savoury snacks and the price of what there was - probably better to eat before you go

This is a very comfortable and wonderful theatre to come to watch musicals. I really enjoyed it and what made this especially great was how well the staff are trained here to quickly stop patrons from lighting-up-their-smartphones-in-the-middle-of-the-bloody-performance. That is one of my pet peeves whenever I go to watch a movie or a live performance - there is usually one... More

Loved, loved, loved this show, we were right in the front row and had the best night ever! The characters, costumes and sets were amazing. The Genie had so much personality - he stole the show! The music and songs were all fantastic, didn't want it to end! All the characters were wonderful especially Iago! The theatre itself had a... More

I visited Capitol Theatre to see Aladdin. Just follow googlemaps to get there! You can eat nearby (there are a lot of restaurants). I booked online, but you can purchase tickets there two hours prior to the show at a fraction of the cost-- if you have time, you could do this, but your selection of seats might not be... More

Possibly the most spectacular and colourful show that I have ever seen. Amazing sets and costumes (enough to populate an entire Sydney Mardi Gras parade!). The actors were wonderful and the whole ensemble was great. A perfect night at the theatre. Don't forget the $45 rush tickets that are sold 2 hours before each performance until the end of the...

I've seen The Lion King (twice), Cats and Aladdin at this beautiful theatre. The seats are comfortable, the sound is great and it's easy to access.

WONDERFUL ! WONDERFUL ! WONDERFUL ! 11/10 ****** 6 STARS Amazing production. My favourite by far ... I can not tell you how amazing this production was from the costume designs, to the stage production. There was glitter and glam written all over it.... The acting was spectacular especially Michael James Scott who played the part of Genie. The entire... More
