A small venue providing unusually intimate performances
The Norwich Playhouse Theatre has been in existence since the mid 1990s. It was opened as a small theatre adjacent to the Playhouse bar, which has been a popular watering in hole in the city for many a year. The theatre immediately began to make a very good name for itself as a venue for stand-up comedy, and over the years has played host to some of the top comedians in the UK and from further abroad. Tim Minchin has performed there, for example, as have evergreen comedy circuit and TV celebrities like Alexei Sayle. More contemporary stand-up performers who have appeared here include the likes of Simon Evans. Because the venue is so small, one often find that the entertainers tailor their shows to suit the venue, so audiences have usually been very fortunate to enjoy more intimate nights out with the artists than are generally possible in the bigger venues where they are more normally encountered. This makes it quite a special place, so it's worth looking out for Norwich Playhouse Theatre tickets if you're after a more up close and personal entertainment experience at the theatre.
Family-friendly fun and stand-up comedy galore
The Norwich Playhouse Theatre also hosts plenty of light theatre entertainment throughout the year. Shows are usually family friendly for matinée performances, with more adult theatre reserved for the evenings. On the whole, though, the entertainment is squarely of the mainstream variety, and there's plenty of light theatre on offer. Audiences young and old have flocked to shows like Room On The Broom, which is a perfect example of the kind of entertainment you'll find here - a little of the beaten track, a little unusual, and always thoroughly enjoyable. Back on the comedy front, the venue's small size hasn't stopped it from being a regular stopping off point for many a UK comedian on tour, particularly those who are still building live audiences. This gives you the chance to catch performers like Phil Wang with his hilarious Philly Philly Wang Wang show - a great example of what has always drawn audiences to the venue.
