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.

We found Cinderella a bit disappointing this year and slightly boring I’m sorry to say. We come every year and this year we just found it not as funny and a bit more serious. Bring back the funny jokes and take away the serious aspects...More

Excellent venue in easy walking distance from city centre and public transport, including trams. Uniquely designed seating structure allowing a good view wherever you sit. Great range of dramas, dance, music and comedy amongst other things, available throughout the year. Went to see Mark Steele...More

We’ve been coming to the Playhouse panto for 30 years and were disappointed this year. Perhaps it was because it is after the new year, the audience was much smaller, but the cast seemed to be going through the motions at times. We got the...More

So sorry to say that this years panto really wasn't as good as last years. First half was lackluster, poorly scripted and directed. Second half was much improved....but the "he's behind you" moment sums it up....effort, it's a simply scene but we needed more direction....More

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