matinee performance... full house. Staff very efficient. There were queues for the toilet ( beforehand) but when is there not at the theatre. It moved fast though. The performance was as expected brilliant. I stood up in the interval - who can sit for 3 hours solid? and went down the two rows to infront of the stage but was... More

Visiting the Playhouse was an ambition long awaited. As big fans of the royal exchange in Manchester, we had not encountered anything with the same ambience aside from the Stephen Joseph theatre in Scarborough. However the Northern Broadsides "when We are married" ran it a close thing. Great intimacy, great acoustics, fabulous ambience and wonderful acting. Its a long jouney... More

This production of" When we are married" by J.B. Priestley performed by Northern Broadsides theatre is absolutely fabulous. It`s an old play given new life and some comedy twists by Barry Rutter and his excellent company. The whole audience was laughing quite a lot throughout. It`s on tour, so catch it at a theatre near you if you can. We... More

Every seat in this theatre is excellent for viewing. We saw the "Wuthering Heights" Ballet and were so pleased. Great view lines and acoustics.

My wife and I and our 7 month old visited today for lunch as I work nearby. This is a shocking place. The children's play area is filthy. It is a health hazzard. I would not let my little girl anywhere near it. The hot food is dried out and very poor. We both ordered the fish cakes. My wife's... More

Went to see Opera Norths production of Into The Woods - every seat has a good view, and was comfortable. Would certainly come again to see other productions.

It is with great reluctance that I report a place for poor quality - anyone can have an 'off' day when things don't go right - but it has to be mentioned when service is consistently poor. This used to be one of my favourite places in Leeds. Some great directors made this place their home, but that wasn't as... More

Went to see Peppa Pig recently. Had a really good afternoon. Wherever you sit you can see the stage clearly which is a bonus with two small children. The cafe is also ideal for a snack

Stunning visual effects, a great story well told and vibrant acting and singing kept the audience entralled. It isn't often that at the end of a show you have audience member squeuing up to buy a copy of the programme - a newspaper style publication with information giving the background and historical information as well as details about the production.

Had lunch here and the food is lovely but I do think that over £6 for a jacket potato and beans it is quite expensive. But overall it is a relaxing experience with a variety of options.
