Place Reviews

This place is a historical spot and well worth a visit to take in some local talent. I enjoy a trip there once a year typically and it never disappoints. Natalie Kelt rated Five-star on 09 Jun 2017.
Saw #thenakedmagicians here and the show was fantastic! Box seating is awesome. sean graves rated Five-star on 13 Apr 2017.
What can I say, a lifetime of shows at the McPherson Playhouse. From Timmy's Telethon to Henry Rollins! I love the central location Elsie Viola Dupuis rated Four-star on 01 Apr 2017.
The McPherson is a wonderful venue.... not a bad seat in the house.... very well maintained. Jorge Gomes rated Four-star on 24 Dec 2016.
I found the person I spoke to at the box office to be very 'offhand' and not one bit helpful. In fact I thought I had just woken her up. I asked what time the box office closed as I wanted to pick up some tickets. She did reply 5 o'clock. I travelled some distance indeed (I normally pick up on the night of the show but I had upgraded so wanted to pick up the other tickets that someone else was taking)and went to the Royal Theatre where I had picked up tickets previously. It was closed. Unbeknownst to me it was closed all summer for pick up. I stood outside and rang the box office explained the situation to which she replied. Oh yeah the Theatre is closed all summer for pickup. I told her I travelled some distance and would not make it over to the Playhouse before it closed. I mentioned that it should be made clear where the tickets are available for pick up. She never replied to my suggestion in fact she was void of empathy and and did not so much as utter even an insincere 'sorry'. I thought perhaps she might have stayed an extra 10 minutes so I could get over there and pick up my tickets in light of the distance I had travelled and having not (in earlier conversation) been informed where to pick up my tickets. I am not a mind reader. Very disappointed in the service. Unbelievable really. Linda Jones rated One-star on 16 Aug 2016.
