Visited for wedding anniversary and enjoyed a pleasant evening. Requested a shout out in advance - but was informed this theatre doesn't take requests. Worth a visit next time it comes to Newcastle.

What an amazing show, telling the story of Frankie Valli. Brilliant from start to finish. Fast paced, full of humour and the singing. Out of this world. The jersey boys were amazing. You must see this show, definatly the best one I’ve seen.

Sorry I have never used anywhere apart from the Royal Circle which is ok but the stalls are best for access although some of the seating has restricted views unfortunately
