Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins were oustsanding in this new Florian Zeller play about a couple as they near the end of their lives. This was a warm up prior to its transfer to the West End. Another telling play from Zeller, cleverly constructed and...More

Saw this production on 6/9/18 as part of its UK tour. Really quite dull and boring. It lacked suspense and drama. The actors did their best but the material and the set were not helping.

We very much enjoyed the show that we saw here - Iolanthe - but our evening was spoiled by the quite ridiculous bag policy which does not permit bags larger than about an A4 sheet of paper. My wife had to spend the evening holding...More

We went to Cambridge Arts Theatre to see "84 Charing Cross Road" mainly because we wanted to see Stefanie Powers live on stage. Great Theatre with great atmosphere. The Building was renovated but the audience room has still the old theatre style.

We have been to the Cambridge Arts Theatre too many times to recall, with an improved reception area and bars on the mezzanine floor, the public spaces are better than ever. Both staff and volunteers are friendly. There are some areas that need attention, the...More

First time we have opted for a Cambridge show instead of London. We were very impressed. A very emotional rendition of a classic book. The music used throughout left you with goosebumps. Would definitely recommend. Although there is a very strict policy on checking bags...More
