Went to see Rebus at the theatre with a friend which we were looking forward to seeing. The play was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed. Cost of drinks are a bit steep but it is the theatre in Aberdeen! Staff were really friendly and helpful too!
Nice place, traditional style and feel to it. Bigger than you think judging the building from the outside. Friendly staff. Nice little bar in the basement. Will go again if there's another good event on. Loads of bars and restaurants nearby of you're looking to have a few pre event drinks or a meal.
I am giving His Majesty's two stars solely on the basis of how uncomfortable the seats are. I am only 5' 4" and my knees touch the back of the seat in front so how taller people cope is beyond me. They are also sparsely padded and the backs are hard. I have just arrived home from seeing the National Theatre production of Macbeth but I couldn't concentrate on the play because of the level of discomfort I was. A great shame because it was an excellent production and the tickets were expensive. It wasn't just me either; my two companions were equally sore by the end. Rant over!
Nice place but hard to get a drink at the bar. There was no one there giving directions and no one checking tickets. The ice cream seller wanted £2 for a can of water which I reluctantly paid. The band I saw were Mogwai and my seat was in an almost perfect spot. They were loud - really loud and had an excellent light show. All in all this was the beginning of an excellent night out on the razz starting out very sober and ending up in the gutter at around 3.30 am. A kebab was had on the way home as per usual and the expected nightmare of trying to get a taxi in the city centre continues. I don't know if it's the taxi drivers or the city council but this situation really needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency. The abuse that some people give out is quite astonishing although some of the taxi drivers don't help with their attitude. Whatever happened to politeness and being helpful. Welcome to the oil capital of Europe my friends.
I always love coming to HMT, it's a great old theatre. It's true that the seats can be a bit cramped and uncomfortable, it kind of depends on where you sit, personally I like sitting at the back row of the dress circle, I find there is a bit more legroom there. You can pre-order your drinks for the interval and they will be ready waiting for you in the bar. Great play tonight Rebus: Long Shadows.
