The play "Talk" with John Waters

Currently showing at the Drama Theatre in the Opera House, this play is surprisingly funny with a great cast, clever dialogue and a thought provoking premise. Highly recommended.

"While most Sydney-siders live outside of the CBD, the City centre is popular for business, shopping and entertainment." That is the view of tour guides and frequent visitors like me. So to find something great to do at night time should be easy when at the centre of all the action. This is not always an easy choice as Sydney... More

We just had drinks here before going elsewhere for dinner recently, and not haviong been here in a year or two, I had forgotten, but it was fantastic. The location is beyond spectacular and a great spot for out of towners, the service and drinks, also, fantastic.

Fantastic performance of this production. Rose Byrne's comedic timing makes the play , although a very strong and menacing performance by Lachy Hulme also is worth the ticket price . The Roslyn Packer theatre was packed, but still comfortable. I'd recommend this wonderful play to most, but if you are sensitive to strong language or aggressive behavior I'd be a... More

We went to see "A Flea in Her Ear" at the Opera House and what a fantastic evening and performance it was. Such great fun was had and I would definitely recommend a viewing if it's still possible. The cast and performance was excellent, bravo to all.

The locations on or close to Sydney Harbour are sensational , the variety of plays means there is one to suit every taste , and the supreme performances leave you wondering how the players maintain such high standards for nights on...

Keep saying the same thing but STC is struggling to put on theatre that we find entertaining - having just seen Speed the Plow, my wife will now resist ever joining me again- asks why such a boring play that has no relevance to today. Sat in the front rows fortunately so felt some emotional connection but doubt if the... More

We're old hands of the review and have been dedicated followers since it began (back when they did two shows a year even). Last year was the 15th and was a bit indulgent as the ensemble looked back. We gave them that even though it didn't prove to be a highlight of the season as it was in previous years.... More

Great plays, great service, great atmosphere and what a view! Right on the harbour! We watched the Power plays and were so engrossed that we were surprised when 2 hours had gone by. There is a fantastic restaurant attached as well. Definitely recommend the pate.

Our first experience of this theatre space. We were able to purchase last minute seats, and wine and dine prior and after the performance at places nearby.
