Review of The Lyceum Theatre

The Lyceum Theatre
Ranked #108 of 418 things to do in Edinburgh
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Fantastic building and the stage is really good. We really enjoy the production. Look out for the blue lady, apparently there is a ghost in the theatre. A classic theatre for a classic play.! And is not very expensive compare with theaters in other big cities

We go at least 4 times a year, they usually do preview shows for the seasons performances that are £10 per ticket, no allocated seating. The Lyceum is my favorite Edinburgh theatre, just saw the production Union and the writing and acting were first class. The staff are always helpful, and in the grand circle you get a great view of the stage.

The theatre itself is well worth seeing, imagining the grandeur of years gone by. The balconies were beautifully decorated, the celing similarly so, with a huge chandelier. The play I saw was Noel Cowards "Private Lives" which was a real tonic, so funny and very well received by an appreciative audience

I took a friend to see Private Lives at the Lyceum this evening. She LOVED it and so did I. The sets were superb ( how I want that Parisian apartment). Excellent performances and the Noel Coward wit just flew around that lovely theatre. I booked stalls box seats which made it more private and with a glass of wine in hand, we enjoyed every moment. Go!

This building is beautiful from the outside, lovely white, that lights up that area of lothain road at night. Inside the chandelier is lovely and gives great welcome. The theatre itself is not that large but is just perfectly proportioned to enjoy intimate show and feel really involved in the shows.
