As theatres go, it’s not that attractive in my personal opinion. The exterior was actually far nicer way back in the early 1990s when it was pale blue.

The interior is overly ornate, and although the acoustic is excellent in the stalls, in the upper dress circle it is a bit lacking.

It does suffer a little from the busy-body volunteers, the nauseous obsession with sucking up to the Lieutenant Governor / Mayor / other local dignitaries when in attendance - I’m sure they are just normal people who would like to watch a play after work unrecognised? On show nights, the foyer is normally full of hob-nobbing social climbers who are desperately trying to be SOMEBODY…….

That all said, the Easter festival of plays is well priced and very enjoyable. There are some good things about the place - rather nice one night when they announced that the show was delayed by 10 mins because an audience member was late arriving from Bride - quite different to the West End, no?

None of the above should detract from the enormous amount of work that has gone into the restoration over the years; it is a Manx asset, and we can all thank the volunteers; without their efforts we would have no theatre at all. I just wish that it was a bit more egalitarian, a place to see as opposed to be seen!

First time in the Gaiety for some time, since the new promenade layout was finished.

There are now 5 disabled parking spaces almost immediately outside. Level access to the stalls via the Villa Arcade and more parking and level access from the Villa Marina Gardens.

Not sure about the horrid red semi circle of light over the stalls bar in the Arcade. Its out of keeping with the Art Deco theme of the rest of the Arcade.

I use a wheelchair. Entrance to the theatre is easy and the access Scheme give a paid for chair space and a free essential companion. But you have to phone and cant book on line.

The camber on the transverse access at rear of stalls is uncomfortable. The accessible seating is row S at very rear of stalls. I don’t transfer. The spaces aren’t level. The rake on the stalls seating is quite noticeable. Uncomfortable sitting with seat tilted forward.

Rear stalls is under the circle overhang. So the top third of the stage is cut off from view.

The show, with artists from Moldovan State Ballet replacing Russians, was well set. Pretty cloths. Attractive costumes. The lighting was dismal. Dancing was generally excellent. They coped well with the rake of the stage.

Act one is always slow. Odd production detail, the Xmas tree transformation didn’t take place until AFTER the first appearance and skirmishes between the toy mice and toy soldiers brought to life. That messes with the story.

Act two, kingdom of the sweets, sugar plum fairy, National dances ( Arabian, Spanish, Chinese ) were good. Finale excellent.

What an interesting tour around this old and beautifully decorated building. Over 2 hours seemed to whizz by. Derek had amazing knowledge and had a range of fascinating anecdotes. We walked around the theatre, stage , under the stage looking at the traps as well as the small museum .

What a great way to spend a Saturday morning with e detailed tour of the theatre ,from the history of the building the restorations ( which your tour fee goes to ) to stepping on to the stage , a wonderful experience not to be missed even if your not a theatre goer. There is a bit of walking up steps to reach the Gods seating but worth it , my only sadness is I was unable to see a show , that will have to wait for my next trip to the IOM.

Questo teatro è proprio di fianco al nostro albergo. Questa sera dopo cena al rientro in hotel ci siamo accorti che ci sarebbe stato uno spettacolo e abbiamo acquistato i biglietti a scatola chiusa, scoprendo che si trattava del saggio di fine corso della scuola di danza. Le ballerine non erano tutte brave allo stesso modo, ma è valsa a pena assistere allo spettacolo per avere l'opportunità di ammirare questo splendido teatro rococò. Putti e amorini stuccati decorano i palchi e al centro c'è un grande lampadario circolare.

Had a fascinating back stage tour, the funds from which go directly to the restoration fund. Superb chandeliers have been purchased from the previous proceeds. An excellent tour lasting over 2 hours gets you from under the stage (where all the Various trapdoors etc are explained), into the auditorium, right up to the Highest seating area and beyond, to the film projection rooms and equipment from its use as an early cinema. Such a stunning theatre that has been restored to its Victorian opulence. I have hearing loss yet the guide was so clear I could hear every word. Don't miss this Saturday morning experience.

The tour is interesting but at 2.5 hours it is far too long. The level of detail provided by the tour guide Derek says more about his level of interest than the majority of the audience.

We decided to visit the Gaiety as our first post lock-down theatre trip and really enjoyed the experience.

Tickets were easy to book on-line and inexpensive at £22 for the show we saw - A Chorus line. (The show was great)

The theatre itself is really beautiful, well maintained and cared for.

The bar prices were very reasonable compared with UK prices and the staff throughout the venue were helpful and welcoming.

Whether you see a show or tour the building, visiting the theatre is a must-do whilst in town. Calendar Girls was especially fantastic and it was a privilege to be their on the first night - with no social distancing - a fantastic performance.

booked a theatre tour for us both ( Wednesdays and Saturdays ) and WOW ,what a way to spend 2 1/4 hours ,our guide was so informative and passionate about this amazing building ,you couldn't help but be caught up in it .The tour was only £5.00 each ( staycation special ) and we visited from of house ,the auditorium ,,back stage ,under the stage ! and up in the gods .The tour included viewing the old lighting ,projection equipment and a small sample of the costumes used in the theatre .
IF you only visit one place in Douglas ,make sure it is this theatre ! Its justly called the jewel in the promenade ,it shows what can be done ,when something is worth saving .
We have now booked a show on the strength of this tour .
