Birmingham Rep Theatre & Peter Pan Show
Jan 2020 • Family
Peter Pan was a fabulous show, with a great cast ...and a modern take on the classic Peter Pan story. A creative, upbeat musical and a refreshing entertaining experience.
The theatre itself is a wonderful venue. It has easy viewing from even the end of row seats. There is easy transport access to the theatre from the new Metro line as it drops you off right outside. Saving local parking charges.
A great night out to be visited again and again.

Fantastic!
Feb 2020
I had a fantastic experience at the Rep Theatre in Birmingham.
Access was really good and the lifts were quick. The staff were attentive but not fussy.
The show was great and I had a great seat. I do love the ledgend of Faustus. This was a reworking of the tale with nods to both Marlowe & Gothe. The set, acting and effects were of a very high standard, beter than some top London shows.
The programme was informative and well laid out.
The whole experience was just fab. I had no access issues. The coffee bar area is casual and had a buzz about it. Well worth a visit!

Nice Venue for a Performance
Feb 2020 • Family
Took three grandchildren to see Cirque Beserk at the theater. Even though we were not able to buy our tickets over the phone (due to a US credit card), they reserved us seats to be picked up at the window upon arrival. The theater is easily accessed by the tram whose last stop at the library leaves you off in front of the theater.

The grandchildren really enjoyed the Cirque Beserk. As long as you can avoid the numerous vendors selling trinkets, the cost is reasonable. The theater is small enough that there isn’t a bad seat. Although, for a couple of the high air acts, it might have been difficult to see everything from the highest seats at the back of the theater due to the curtain top.

Always a pleasure
Feb 2020 • Friends
Went to see ‘asking for it’ which was amazing!! We was reluctant to buy the cheap 15 pound 2 front row seats however we was so happy when we got there and realised they were probably the best seats there. They are very close to the stage and have limited leg room but do not hesitate to book these seats!! We could still see everything that went on, unsure what it would be like in other performances, but if it’s similar then they are great seats to sit in. I love the REP theatre, always a pleasure to go.

So small!
Feb 2020 • Friends
I’d never been to the Rep before & the play we went to see was a two person show with no set. It was full & we enjoyed it, but I was shocked at the size! It was very small & there was no stage, so I’m assuming that there is a larger part for full size productions. I really liked it & the size really fit with show!
We had drinks in the bar beforehand - it was pretty busy & while we were waiting for our drinks, they called for us to be seated, we were allowed to take our drinks in in glasses, although others had been given plastic ones.
Very enjoyable evening, but I’m curious to go back now to see a bigger show!

Great family show
Jan 2020 • Family
We were lucky enough to get discounted tickets for Peter Pan on it’s closing weekend at the Rep.
The metro now goes into broad street and stops directly opposite the rep making it now even more accessible and affordable to reach.
The show was quite alternative but very captivating and enjoyable. The actors were fab although “Wendy’s” Scottish accent was quite hard to understand at some points and grating at times (sorry).
The views were good from most seats. The sound was good, Overall it was good!!
We took our own drinks and snacks which made it a really affordable and enjoyable evening!

Great offers

The 18-30 preview club is great for cheap £5-£10 tickets for shows. The staff are always welcoming there too.

Awful Peter Pan
Jan 2020 • Friends
What is the Rep hoping to achieve with these “ alternatives “ productions? So disappointed at Peter Pan last week, I expected the council/ foster care angle but not the gabbling dialogue, shouting and loud rap music. Spent most of the time looking at the subtitles! Awful!

Fascinating Backstage Tour
Dec 2019
As regular theatre goers we welcomed the opportunity to go behind the scenes.
From the workshop where the props are made, the wardrobe, the wig shop and onto the stage it was all really interesting and our two guides were very knowledgeable.
They were staging Peter Pan so the set on the stage in the main auditorium was amazing to see up close.
We love the Rep and future visits will be even better, having seen a little of what goes into putting on a production.

Excellent pre show meal. Good variety inc interesting veggie options and wonderful service. The 2 course option includes everything on the menu. The beetroot and ricotta ball salad that my friend had was fantastic.
