Attended the theatre last night to see this great production. The State Theatre is easy to get to with reasonably priced parking and a variety of eateries and bars for pre dinner. The State Theatre is very comfortable with great visibility. Really enjoyable night.

Hi I'm fairly short so always sit in the dress circle as the floor is not sloped enough for me. It's a beautiful theatre & most seats are great. Enjoy.
