“Disappointing ”

TripAdvisor ratingReviewed 2mos ago by Tara N

Really disappointed I spent nearly $600 on 2 tickets and had to sit in really small and uncomfortable seats and had to look at the back of a gentleman's head the whole concert. Not what I payed for...

“Great venue for a play and a rock gig”

TripAdvisor ratingReviewed 1yr ago by Dayle E

Saw a play and a rock band here - both awesome experiences. Canberra itself is a bit boring but at least with the theatre there is some fun and culture. Very comfortable seats and great location.

Last night we attended ‘The Wider Earth’ in the Playhouse. It was a beautiful show - thought-provoking, beautifully acted and amazing puppets. Really recommend!
