I would rate yhis theatre top class. The accoustics are good, seats comfortable and there are no "blind" spots thai have noticed where one's view is blocked. The productions they put on are excellant. The accessiblity for tge disabled is good and the foyer is very pleasant to have a pre-show drink

Watching Westside Story - I could have been in New York or London. The performance and the stage were world class and the show was presented with a glitch. - Standing Ovation material. The theatre is in superb condition, and the parking and the organisation all flow and wok without any effort

Very impressive and unexpectedly great performance. Sophisticated set, live orchestra and unforgettable cast of actors delivered a world class performance in this hidden gem theater in Braamfontein. Highly recommended
