Went here to see Funny Girl. The theatre is a marvellous building & the interior so elegant. The only downside was we had trouble finding it when we walked from the city centre. The blue finger posts didn't give clear directions so we were very close to the time when we arrived. We sat in the grand tier row J... More

Sheridan Smith is a talented actress acclaimed for her performance as Cilla Black, but taking on a role played by Barbra Streisand proved a step too far amid a very average touring musical production that looked a cheap cost cutting show with no sparkle, no glamour, a weak story and dance routines that wouldn't make it through on one of...

My wife got us tickets for Swan Lake as part of my Christmas present and we decided to have a overnight stay in Manchester. First impressions are that the theatre is a nice classic place to be so we went up to the circle bar and had a couple of glasses of wine and my wife bought a couple of... More

We went to see the funny girl performance which was excellent, the theatre itself has a lot of character. We made a mistake booking seats high up and they had restricted leg room and they are not kidding, after losing circulation in my feet I had to stand up up at the back as it was just too uncomfortable. It... More

On arrival to the Theatre, I noticed that there was no disabled entrance. Something which wasn't highlighted to me when I had purchased the tickets. I had to climb up the steps, using my crutches, to then... More
