[@]Theatre and Show Reviews
Manchester has several excellent performance and theatre spaces. National touring productions are regularly staged at The Lowry, Palace Theatre and the Opera House.
Even with these major spaces there is thriving culture for small and local productions. These can be found in places such as the Contact Theatre, HOME or the very intimate Three Minute Theatre in Afflecks.
Manchester attracts major productions such as Wicked or The Lion King, whereas the smaller theatres are able to dedicate space to independent producers, writers and player-led companies or deliver programmes that have a community feel and vibe.
