Visited the Playhouse and the theatre was really good all of the seats appeared to have leg room and a great view. The staff were lovely. Strictly Ballroom the Musical was fantastic, I visited with some friends who live in Leeds for the matinee show on the 7th and to be honest didnt have a clue as I'd never seen... More

Just been to see Strictly Ballroom at the WYP. Stunning performance, which has even outdone the incredible Chitty Bang Bang from last year. Sets, costumes, choreography, performances were all incredible. An absolute must for everyone over the festive period. If you loved the film, you will adore the show. If you've never seen the film, prepare to be amazed. Don't... More

The west Yorkshire playhouse, shimmers and gleams with a hint of what is to come with this fantastic show. Start off your evening with a lovely meal in the theatre overlooking the lights of Leeds.Then settle in for a feast of glamour and sparkle as the show begins. With lightening fast footwork,combined with familiar and new songs,these performers are amazing.Reflecting... More

We were visiting Yorkshire to do the normal Christmas run with presents etc and we decided to got to the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds to see STRICTLY BALLROOM - what a great night it turned out to be. The theatre may not be the grandest BUT what it lacks in character it more than makes up in other ways,... More

matinee performance... full house. Staff very efficient. There were queues for the toilet ( beforehand) but when is there not at the theatre. It moved fast though. The performance was as expected brilliant. I stood up in the interval - who can sit for 3 hours solid? and went down the two rows to infront of the stage but was... More

Visiting the Playhouse was an ambition long awaited. As big fans of the royal exchange in Manchester, we had not encountered anything with the same ambience aside from the Stephen Joseph theatre in Scarborough. However the Northern Broadsides "when We are married" ran it a close thing. Great intimacy, great acoustics, fabulous ambience and wonderful acting. Its a long jouney... More

This production of" When we are married" by J.B. Priestley performed by Northern Broadsides theatre is absolutely fabulous. It`s an old play given new life and some comedy twists by Barry Rutter and his excellent company. The whole audience was laughing quite a lot throughout. It`s on tour, so catch it at a theatre near you if you can. We... More

Every seat in this theatre is excellent for viewing. We saw the "Wuthering Heights" Ballet and were so pleased. Great view lines and acoustics.

My wife and I and our 7 month old visited today for lunch as I work nearby. This is a shocking place. The children's play area is filthy. It is a health hazzard. I would not let my little girl anywhere near it. The hot food is dried out and very poor. We both ordered the fish cakes. My wife's... More

Went to see Opera Norths production of Into The Woods - every seat has a good view, and was comfortable. Would certainly come again to see other productions.
