Been there several times. Sound of Music, Singing In The Rain snd recently; for "Wicked". Theater facilities and sound effects is quite good. Convenient location that can be easily reached by various forms of public transport. My children go there occasionally for ballet practice at the dance studios.

Visited Lyric Theatre of Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts many times, for different musicals, ballets and plays. Last week, I watched a spectacular musical there. I would say, I am confident of the theatre facilities and sound effects there. They are of a professional level. A convenient venue which can be reached from Admiralty MTR station on foot.

Saw the latest RSC version of the history plays here last March. It's a well-managed professional theater that can seat around 1,000 viewers. Easy to find in Wan Chai.

An excellent show for the young and old. Lots of fun with dancing and singing. The British jokes were super. Area was easily accessible by trains. They also have a car park there.

I've been to see The Sound of Music here last month, the main theatre here call Lyric Theatre is a medium size theatre. The auditorium size is really great for play musical or event dance show. Though the place is really nice but the access is a bit difficult to access from the train. It is about 10-15 minutes walk... More

We went to watch 'The Sound of Music' musical this afternoon. The show itself was pleasant but the facility could do with some simple renovations. The carpets on the stairs were so threadbare that most were covered in what looked like packaging tape! And the flooring on the first level was uneven. My strongest criticism is the lack of communication... More

The 43rd Hong Kong Arts Festival featured a number of international performances at the HKAPA venues in Wan Chai again this year, several which we very much enjoyed here. We very much enjoyed the Dublin based Gate Theatre's performance of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudge. This was a lovely evening, one that had us longing for more regular opportunity to... More

We recently attended a performance by the London based 'Shakespeare's Globe Theatre company at the HKAPA Lyric Theatre and very much enjoyed their production of 'A Mid Summer Night's Dream'. Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is a world renowned group company who usually perform out of the iconic Globe Theatre on the shores of Southwark in London. We have had the pleasure... More

My Wife and I went to the Lyric for the first time to see the Bootleg Beatles, After driving in from China on a Friday night I did however under estimate the traffic in HK adding a further 1 hour to cross from TST to Wanchai making the experience a little stressful. Would certainly suggest getting to Wanchai a lot... More
