The Market Theatre, Johannesburg Reviews
This place always gets full marks from me. They have great shows, great actors, great price for their shows and the place is clean, wheelchair accessible, bathrooms are very clean. The bar is my favourite hangout after the show. The waitrons are friendly, and quick with orders. I just love this place.
Great atmosphere. Wonderful, crowd. ATMs are close by. Parking is safe.
Had a great time watching a show here. They're punctual and have clean toilets. There is a restaurant close by and refreshments are available for sale. There's also a mall which is a thirty second walk away, okay maybe a minute walk away which one could chill at while waiting for their show to start. Just the parking is a bit tricky.
Great space, range of facilities and workshops on offer. Good staff, nice and friendly. Fantastic work created there and a vibrant part of Jo'burg.
Hi. The play was vintage Fugard. Well acted and directed. Parking good everything well signposted
