Went to see the Short and Sweet theatre final here. The venue is lovely and beautifully decorated but the reception a little small for the numbers. Given the size you get up close and personal nap with the stage. In the interval the queue for the loos was a pain. Walk out and straight among the fab bars and restaurants.... More

A lovely theatre with ample room for all varieties of performances. Most major productions in Dubai are performed in this theatre and many theatre groups perform here for their annual showcase. For audience members: the seats are staggered well and the lobby area is very nice and glamorous! For performers: the backstage area is suitable for a vast amount of... More

Great shows being executed here. Small but acceptable and convenient. Attached to Madinat Jumeirah. Parking is a bit of a nightmare on weekends, but can always do valet.

Went to see the Christmas Production at this lovely theatre. It looked extra good because of the festive decorations. We booked the cheaper balcony seats but on arrival were given a free upgrade to stall seating. Super production, we went as an adult group and enjoyed the festive feel of the production with its Santa theme and festive songs. Lots... More

This place is very picturesque with the Burj Al Arab near by , chain of nice shops styled in souks and chain of restaurants. Getting a seat can be a challenge. Inside the theatre popcorn is the best choice though... More

Thus far I have visited the Madinat Theatre twice, first to watch Shorter+Sweeter and then The Woman in Black. Nestled in the heart of the bustling Souk Madinat Jumeirah, the Madinat Theatre is a cosy theatre. Because of its size, it has an air of intimacy that allows the audience to connect with the production and the performers. It is... More

A great hip hop dance show that was very professional and very entertaining - although quite a bit shorter than advertised (60 mins rather than 90 mins).
