We've come here a number of times to see plays. Our most recent event was to watch the fabulous My Fair Lady - but this time I booked box seats. I do hope this place never closes.

My fair lady was amazing and the Capitol building is a beautiful gem of architecture built in 1916. Great snacks and beverages and the bar and fantastic location in the city of Sydney

Great show, very professional and well presented in this grand old theatre. Agree with previous comments about the foyer and lack of toilets for ladies but the theatre itself is just great with brilliant acoustics and vision. Well done Sydney.
