I use the Marlowe Theatre very often as it's very easy to get to. Most recently we went to see The Woman In Black- i had rather low expectations for this as it was in a large theatre (which i didn't think would give the same spooky effect as the smaller London theatre) but i was wrong- VERY frightening!

Went with some friends to the Panto.....OMG....full of crazy kids. We had a great time the matinee was full of school parties which was great to see how much they enjoyed it. Brilliant and professional performance. I don't think I have laughed so much in ages.

Went to a superb production of Mozart's Don Giovanni at The Marlowe and the stage is certainly big enough to accommodate decent sized and complicated sets. However, beware if you are in the back rows of the stalls as, there is a overhang from the Circle above which could be awkward if you are seeing a production which has surtitles... More

We went to this show yesterday and I would highly recommend it. Absolutely brilliant. I have never been to a panto before (even though I am 57!!!) and I really didn't know what to expect. I am definitely going again and again. My daughter, son in law and grandchildren all said how great it was so three generations were all... More

Dick Whittington panto at the Marlowe. Great venue with friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Really enjoyed the panto as always. It's great fun for all ages, whilst we do go every year I would highly recommend it.

Amazing show . Very clever play well worth seeing. Won't spoil the story and tell you about the story but it's clearly got a scary tale to tell. Go and see women in black. Marlow theatre is comfortable and seats are allowing a good stage view

My friend and I often visit the Marlowe Theatre which has a varied programme of all kinds of theatrical production. Our latest visit was to the Glyndebourne Touring company's opera production of Don Giovanni, but the overall programme offers theatre of all kinds and musicals. You need to check their website or publicity to see what's on. The seats are... More
