Monty python the musical - great nights entertainment. Staff very helpful. Ice cream very overpriced £10 for 4 small cartons of local ice cream which is available in shops for 50 pence each. Not fair.

THis is a beautiful building with great shows but it's just too hot which makes it really uncomfortable if you are there for a couple of hours. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Last week, I went to watch the musical Beautiful, the story of Carol King's life and it was just that, BEAUTIFUL! The very old Opera house is stunning and apparently recently refurbished and being there was an absolute treat.

Went last night to see the musical. It was so boring. No big finale of songs at the end. The 3 main male characters all looked the same. The whole audience were very grumpy looking. The main girl was average. So, no, i didnt enjoy.

I have not booked the box, but have watched those who did and they are usually having great fun. If you can afford it, then yes, it's worth it for a special experience.
