Wow, simply brilliant, if you can go book it! Brilliant performance all round. The attention to detail in the props, costumes and overall performance was amazing.

Great story, Charles Dickens involved within the story line is a brilliant take on the story, go you won't regret it!!

Booked tickets way back in May to take Dad away for his 80th birthday. My younger brother, Dad and myself plus my young 10 year old grandson all Stratford and indeed Shakespeare first timers went. The whole experience was wonderful. We saw 12th Night and had a great time. We have all decided we would love to go back again. The sets, the acting everything was first class. All staff were very friendly and made my grandson feel very welcome.

Went to watch 2017s rendition of CORIALANUS at the RSC and it was simply perfect here. The ticket collection was easy as was locating the seats.
The coffee served here was good value and tasty too. Cant comment on the other drinks but other people seemed to enjoy it. Will visit the RSC again for sure.

One recent reviewer didn't like this play but most people seem to be enjoying it. We agree with them. Great acting, great atmosphere. We liked the set and the music. Good acoustics - our seats were at the front of the 'Upper Circle' and we could hear every word. Not too much legroom but an excellent view.

There's a lot of attention being paid to Ade Edmonsdon and Kara Tointon, the 'big' names. They were very good - but the standout for me was Dinita Gohil's Viola. I hope we see much more of her.

My wife and I watched the production of Anthony & Cleopatra in June, 2017 and was captivated by the set, actors, and the overall facility of the place. We were there during an unseasonably warm week -- record temperatures were broken -- but the theater was cooled by air-conditioning, which made the viewing bearable. This is a world-class facility, no doubt, from the facility to the staffing. The acting by "Cleopatra" was a revelation -- I have never seen such great acting on stage in my life. From top to bottom, you will not be disappointed to carve out time in an afternoon or evening to be here. One of my best memories of traveling in England!
