We've visited the Joburg Theater few times. Every time we've watched an amazing play or a concert. The level of the actors and musicians is unbelievable. We were blown away every time. The size of the theater makes it very personal and connected experience. On the practical side - the facilities are well maintained and there is plenty of underground... More

Went to West Side Story at the weekend. Excellent show! Sets brilliant. In fact the whole show was great. Gripe - Very uncomfortable seats (and we had VIP Box seats).

The venue is very nice and the productions well managed. The plays are always interesting and the nicest thing was that the theatre manager is a hands on and visible.

You can see some great theatre at the Joburg. Every year-end they stage a now-legendary pantomime in the large theatre, but during the year, in smaller venues inside the complex they frequently stage more experimental, less mainstream shows. If you are from out of town, then travel by taxi as some areas around the theatre are less than salubrious

This little gem in down town Johannesburg is well worth the visit. The shows are fantastic, professional and always aw inspiring from ballets to pantomimes. Very safe parking, beautiful lobby and friendly service. Have enjoyed the productions of Romeo and Juliette, Cinderella, Spartacus of Africa to name a few.

Senior citizens were treated with half price tickets to see Cinderella, the ballet, a wonderful initiative by The Theatre and what a beautiful show it is. A total must-see for the whole family. Just a tip: anyone intending to eat or enjoy refreshments at the theatre restaurant is advised to go early as the service is extremely slow.
