  • What a beautiful little theatre! Beautiful architecture, design and layout, that is until the performance started... and then it all turned bad. They allow photography and video! I do not know how many times those people who want to have a full, beautiful experience, had to ask others to switch off the phone! Absolutely unbelievable and unacceptable! Even in the cinema they ask to switch off the phone, why not in the theatre?! Has the cultural level fallen so low?
