“Absolutely gorgeous”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Went to the Theatre to see The Lion King and was so impressed by the exquisite architecture of this building. It is stunning throughout. The theatre has an old world charm about it and every single staff member we came into contact with was outstanding. The Theatre was packed but you could still get around. Would definitely recommend anyone getting a chance to see a production here should give it a go, only minimal complaint is that seats are a little uncomfortable with not too much leg room.

“Amazing venue”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

I recently saw the Lion King at one of the most beautifully decorated theatres in Sydney. I was impressed by the highest quality staff. Courteous, and helpful from the welcoming guy at the front entry to the ushers at the door. Well done by all.
