Lovely traditional theatre with excellent shows. HOWEVER BEWARE OF DYNAMIC PRICING. It will be interesting to see if this strategy will have an impact on seat sales at the inflated prices. Sheffield might not be acceptable to this pricing as London.

We went to see the Little Shop of Horrors sat 12th Nov 16. As always this was a great night out. Highly recommend the Lyceum Theatre for an evening out.

I don't know if it was the Musical Cats or the Theater which excited me. I think both. I like the flair of this theater really much. Maybe the seating could be a little bit better but we had perfect seats and nobody in front of us.

Sunny afternoon tour. One of the best musicals I've seen. Saw this in London and this was just as good as the London performance. Whole audience on their feet. I was exhausted at the end. Fabulous!!!!

Theater foyer and bar area very clean and great atmosphere. Drinks surprisingly affordable. Downside seats in balcony very uncomfy and the bars to stop you falling over are in the way of seeing the stage. Sunny Afternoon was exceptional can't believe they do it twice.
