Exceptional - 5 out of 5

Alexander, Aberdeen Sun, 5 January 2020

Entry despite search was quick and easy and found seats quickly. Show was great but exit was slow (charity cash buckets); tried to book food online but difficult.

Liked: Show was superb.
Disliked: Lack of waste bins at interval.

Edinburgh Playhouse was an excellent experience, showing the UK tour of Billy Elliot the Musical.

Liked: Billy Elliott the Musical: I saw three shows and they were all absolutely brilliant. Outstandingly talented cast and the boys who played Billy and Michael are phenomenally talented!
Disliked: Nothing at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful!
