  • Attended to see Barnum, the musical, great show. But we had never been here before and got tickets in the dress circle. Well there are no lifts, so it is like walking up 4 flights of stairs to our sea...  more »
  • Fabulous atmosphere at this theatre, fairly decent acoustics for such a small venue and lovely friendly staff. Access though to the dress circle is very difficult for older persons with all the stairs...  more »

  • Comedy Theatre Melbourne. Nice old theatre a bit more intimate than some of the larger theatres. Good seating with legroom. Old-world charm.
  • Excellent venue. The revamp makes it a comfortable and entertaining place to watch comedy and musicals.
