“Very good but.....”

West Yorkshire Playhouse
Ranked #12 of 200 things to do in Leeds
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 January 2018

Having been a fan of WYP since the old days in the uni building I'm still a fan but it's good the upgrade is on the way. Things are a bit tired and the seating is cramped and uncomfortable. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a little disappointing this Christmas. There were some good effects but it suffered from being too pared down and relied on the audience being familiar with the story. Oh and the accents......disastrous!

Wow, what a fantastic spectacle!

So much energy and talent in this show, the costumes look AMAZING, and the cast are fantastic, from the creative movements of the animals to the posture of the Queen!

Went to see The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe on Friday and discovered to my horror that I had mistakenly booked for the 5th December and not 5th January!!
After speaking to the desk staff they were very helpful and found us seats elsewhere, wouldn’t allow us to pay ( it was clearly our fault ) and we were seated in better seats than the ones we had paid for!!
Really helpful staff, polite friendly and above all else went the extra mile without fuss or issue, great service!!

Wasn’t sure what to expect having been subject to the Narnia years on TV and film but this was extraordinary. Best show I have seen, 360 degree stage and set awesome, great music, immersive and audience participation...had the lot really. All the cast were excellent but loved the wolf dance and the little animals especially. Great for all ages ...you nailed it

Excellent play and what a cast
Recommend play to watch for any age
Even the very you where mesmerized and could not believe their eyes

Down side to this visit was the abominable food that was served in the restaurant
I have eaten better at a greasy spoon cafe
Very little choice and what was available was stone cold frozen food
Coffee machine was out of action thus we could not wash the taste away
Tea was tepid
Wish we had gone somewhere else to eat
But been an out of town people we did not know where to go
