I went to see Kinky Boots on Saturday which was absolutely awesome, so I am definitely not bagging the show, however, was really, really disappointed with the venue. As I said to my sister, "imagine how good that would have been on a BIG STAGE", this completely outdated Theatre really is amateurish in size in and layout. It is beautiful... More

What a fantastic location! We had a blast watching the very skilled cast of Kinky Boots. Took my teenage nephew who loves the performing arts. He had such a great time here.

Saw Kinky Boots at the Capitol in Campbell St, Sydney for the 2pm show. If you like Musicals then you will enjoy this production. Very entertaining and a beautiful building. Had tapas for lunch before at Encasa in Pitt street. Great afternoon.

Capitol Theatre is a beautiful old theatre that has excellent shows. Saw Kinky Boots in April and Les Miserables in 2016. Best seats are closer to stage (obviously ). Stairs to the Dress Circle are very steep.

Devine theatre experience! We caught a cab from our hotel at Circular Quay for less than $20 each way. Lots of great places to eat and drink near the theatre. The show was sold out but due to the size and layout of the theatre everyone could move freely and make purchases at the bar/s with ease. Wonderful night!

Capitol Theatre was just down the road from where we stayed, we seen Aladdin it was truly amazing, the theatre is a must for all who go to Sydney it is truly beautiful, the staff were all polite and helpful,lots of stairs if you have trouble with them I suggest you check carefully where you are seated.

We were here early March for the show Aladdin & I do mean WOW! Highly entertaining, energetic mesmerising musical all showcased at the wonderful Capital Theatre.. only complaint is that the seats of chairs are getting a tad tired & hurts the bottom somewhat...
