I enjoy the theatre because of its size and therefore the intensity - you almost feel part of the how being so close to the stage. The enjoyment though can seriously depend on the quality of the show - been to a few performances this...More

In some ways, is more satisfying than other theatres because of its small size. Most seats are close to the stage so you can become more immersed in the play than other larger theatres, Some excellent productions like Cloud Nine which is currently playing.

There are two problems with the 2016 "Wharf Review." First, with a few notable exceptions, the material this year isn't up to their previous extremely high standard. Instead of sparkling wit, far too many weak puns take the place of genuine humor. Second, Katrina Retallick...More

The Wharf Review. Phillip Drew Jonathon and the new bird. Sensational. Jonathon's skit on understanding war in the Middle East is the best you could ever see. If on YouTube it would rate millions of hits. How does he remember it? And the new bird...More

Haven't been to Wharf 1 for many years, but the atmosphere and comfort were just as I remembered. The performance lasted 2 hours 45 minutes and my seat (and view) were perfectly comfortable the whole time (unlike some other theatres I could name!)

The Wharf Theatre could be one of the best adverts for Sydney that the city has, perched at the end of a narrow 'finger wharf' that stretches into the harbour, with the Harbour Bridge looming large to the right and Luna Park diagonally opposite. And...More

This theatre is everything modern theatres aren't. Built on the end of a wharf the longish walk from the road to the theatre can be challenging but it's worth it. There's a bar at the end (used to be a restaurant but now it's just...More
