“Love it with one downfall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

I go to the curve alot to see the big productions and they are amazing , very professional and modern compared to De montfort hall. Drinks and ice cream are a tad pricey.

The only downfall is they only put on 3 big shows a year , the others are for babies and ametures.

“Good show poor theatre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Went to see Birdsong at the Curve.
Well produced and well acted but the theatre let the show down.
The acoustics were poor. We were sat at the rear of the theatre and at times were unable to hear the dialogue properly.
Also the tiered seating is too shallow. I had a tall gentleman sat in front of me and I was therefore unable to see one part of the stage. The part where a lot of the acting took place. I had to keep moving myself to try and get a better view. This must have been discomforting for the people behind.
The cafe bar is quite expensive. We had two small tubs of ice cream and just one bottle of water. This cost over £6.00. Poor value.
The issues experienced does not encourage me to go again.

“Excellent venue”

Personally I prefer to sit in the stalls. Modern theatre, with state of the art special effects. Stage many outstanding productions including Matthew Bourne, National Theatre etc

A great evening at the curve, really improved since it opened. Easy parking and lovely surroundings. Not many places to eat near by but some good options near belvoir st.
