The show is truly spectacular with wonderful set design, choreography, musicians and cast. There was a technical mishap in the first act which lasted 10 to 15 minutes. This was handled very professionally by the Theatre staff. The chorus are excellent with a range of...More

Popped to see Sweet Charity after seeing an advert with Rebecca Trehearn. The show was great and the leads both great. Would definitely recommend the show and keep my eyes out for other upcoming performances at the Playhouse.

The Playhouse is a true joy - the seats are comfortable, adequate leg room and not too close to the person in the next seat. The acoustics are good as is the vision of the main stage. It makes a great venue to spend times...More

I live in Nottingham and this theatre is just down the road so I go to most productions. Recent shows (Wonderland, Our Country's Good, Holes, The Last Ship) have been outstanding. My only gripe is the price of wine!

Went today to see The Last Ship, very good. Class war, union management war, us and them, love story, great music and death. Powerful political statement at the end. Worth seeing. Nice theatre and location. Will go again

We only visited here for a quick beer on route to concert hall next door. The bar doesn’t have a lot of seating but it’s got a decent range of beers.

Hi, central seats are the best. Aisle seats if you can. No bad seats in the house though

No dress code so if you have not been to the theatre before do not be intimidated by feeling you have to dress up. That said, its always good to make something of the occasion so "smart casual" should suffice. Personally I... More
