The New Alexandra Theatre, commonly known as the Alex, is a theatre on Station Street in Birmingham, England.The theatre currently seats 1,371 and hosts a busy programme of touring drama, West End shows and stand-up comedy. It was the home of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company between 1990 and 1997. In January 2006 the Alexandra Theatre changed management once again, to be managed by Live Nation, a company that specialised in concert promotion and large venue operations. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group, and after a minor refurbishment the group renamed the theatre the New Alexandra Theatre.

Visited on Friday 9 Feb. It was a great show but because of bollards at the Arcadian which we didn’t know about and neither did the taxi driver we missed the first twenty minutes. BCC again. The show was very lively and amazing singing and...More

Came to see Strangers on a Train. The set was really good how it moved around, the actors were really good. Would recommend for people to see.

Went to see Flashdance and the show was great and the theatre has a lot of character. Always make sure that you go for a drink elsewhere before the show as the queues in the bar areas once you get inside are long
