The theatre puts on some great stuff but the tiers in the circle are SO steep, and the seats are so close together, do not book the circle if you are prone to vertigo!

Visited Nottingham Playhouse this weekend for the first time in order to see 'The Madness Of King George.' A beautiful theatre with plenty of leg-room in the seating and very comfortable seats. We were in the second row of the circle and the view was...More

A great venue offering a wide range of plays, suiting all ages. Entertainment varies from traditional classic plays to comedy solos, from dance to ballet. Discussions are available for certain plays to talk about the production. We saw Kindergarten - a gripping play based on...More

Popped to see Sweet Charity after seeing an advert with Rebecca Trehearn. The show was great and the leads both great. Would definitely recommend the show and keep my eyes out for other upcoming performances at the Playhouse.

The Playhouse is a true joy - the seats are comfortable, adequate leg room and not too close to the person in the next seat. The acoustics are good as is the vision of the main stage. It makes a great venue to spend times...More
