Jane Austin said there is no sense in a play without curtains so when I entered the theatre to be confronted by a beautifully lit red curtain, I was already on side! The thunderous spontaneous standing ovation said it all. The show was an absolute treat and everyone connected with it should be immensely proud, Thank you for one of... More

Went to see Strictly Ballroom here on Tuesday. The show was absolutely brilliant but obviously we're reviewing the venue here. Great intimate theatre with parking nearby (Victoria Gate). Very reasonable - only £3 for 5 hours post 6pm. The Playhouse public areas aren't particularly spacious - small lobby with woefully understaffed bar. Equally the queue for the ladies loo took...

Had tickets bought for xmas present for Strictly Ballroom. Super show well acted. Fantastic energy, good (if common) theme ! boy meets girl falls in love / triumphs over adversity and domineering mother. Nevertheless if this show doesn't give you a lump in your throat and bring a tear to your eye there's no hope for ya. Watch out for... More

Great show, in a very comfortable modern theatre. Leg room was great- a big deal for me! We were only 4 or 5 rows from the back, but the view and the entire experience was excellent. Also enjoyed the dinner in the restaurant which we bought as part of the package. Great food and friendly service.

I imagine I am too late to encourage you to go see the Strictly Ballroom aka - the Australian film. How they managed to impart so many scenes, emotions, laughing and crying on that tiny stage I will never know. Totally transported with sparkle and the occasional sequin in the eye. I was sat next to a plank who didn't... More

As a birthday treat for me and a Christmas treat for my mum and 2 sisters, my husband booked tickets for us to go see this wonderful show - he knows how much I loved the film! On arrival at the theatre - a very short taxi ride from the station - we had a brief wait until the doors... More

Love this theatre. It's easy to get to and wherever you sit you have a great view of the stage. The performance is Strictly Ballroom was outstandingly brilliant. I worried that one of my favourite films wouldn't translate to the stage. How wrong I was !! It was amazing. Don't miss seeing this brilliant show.

We went along to see Strictly ballroom. What a terrific show. A long one though. I am afraid I do not agree with what has been said about tickets. You get what you pay for and we got higher priced tickets and were in row D. I thought it was much better than if we had been further back. This... More

Firstly , dont pay the higher price tickets as you can see wherever you sit in this lovely theatre! All seats are very similar view because of the layout of the place ! Food was lovely in the restaurant before the show. Only downside was the tables. A bit cafe style . The. Show itself was top notch. You will... More
