Small and compact theatre. Walking in the front door you are immediately faced with the bar. Toilets are downstairs and kept in great condition. The seats are fairly close together but plenty of leg..... more »
I was surprised by this theatre. There was no usual line for entry as the team members worked organized and fast. Though the theatre building is old and not very much renovated it's presentable. The Play is just breathtaking. I loved how the actors act. If you're fan of good plays with small budget this is for you. You can have a great experience in this theatre. However if you're fan of extravaganza of the building, decor, music ensemble then this is place it's not you're type. A simple theatre with good actors
From the outside this theatre looks enormous but it’s actually super compact and some of the audience sit in nooks and crannies around the stage. Absolutely fantastic, high octane and energetic show and well casted! Loved the absolute classic Fiddler on the Roof!
