Owner description: Melbourne’s iconic Princess Theatre is regarded by many as Melbourne’s most spectacular landmark. Dating back as far as 1854, the theatre was purchased by Marriner Theatres in 1986 and plans were immediately put in place for its total refurbishment to ensure its future viability as a live theatre venue. The Princess Theatre reopened in 1989 with the musical ‘Les Miserables’ followed by ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ which established a new record for the longest-running show ever staged in Victoria. Today, it continues to host some of the world’s most renowned theatre productions.

“Great night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Legally Blonde The Musical was on and we had to take an evening out to see and review! What a great decision! Nice fairly intimate theatre, front seats in the first balcony were perfect. Great entertainment for a night in Melbourne

“Legally Blonde Sat 29/7/13”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

Dress circle seats, row B in the 20's gave excellent viewing, thankful for intermission to stretch legs! My partner is 6ft 2 & his knees hit the front f row A chairs so small seats. Legally Blonde was a great mix of humour, song, dance. The Princess Theatre itself whilst grand from outside with lights & signs & people & buzz, inside its seen its day and in need of repair in certain areas (carpet, cracks in walls, roof, painting). Overall a pleasant evening & venue but could do with a renovation.

“Great theatre for shorter statured people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Went to the Saturday matinee session to see Legally Blonde. Enjoyed the musical a lot, seats were OK (end of the row in the stalls) and the staff were professional and attentive.

Would have liked a little more room to squeeze my 6' frame, as the person in front was so close that it felt like they were on my lap...
