Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!- Bjorn Again perform live in Auckland - amazing energy at Bruce Mason Centre. Bjorn Again trumps with rollicking good fun, sing-along melodies of way back when; enduring timeless hits. Glitzy 70s costumes, we get to DressUp as well – just fab! Young, older fans, 'n' enthusiasts in-between of ABBA - fantastic.. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.)

We have been here several times, for various shows over the past couple of years. Nice place to come, good seats, good atmosphere and easy parking.

We went to a 'Jazz Spectacular' show and every instrument sounded perfect. Good parking nearby and very easy access. The only thing missing is a centre aisle but even from a side aisle we had a good view.

Not really able to get a bad seat in this venue have always found it great, easy to get in and out of - go earlier for best parking for free on the road but otherwise reasonable secure parking behind and up road of venue.

Once again was well worth the trip to come specially all the way from Rotorua to a show in this great theatre, the most recent one being the fab MADIBA THE MUSICAL. Seats always comfortable, theatre small enough that it doesn't matter where you sit you get a good view of the stage. Enjoy having a drink in the foyer beforehand, and an icecream at half time! Love this theatre!!

This place is an oasis in the desert, set on the North Shore at Takapuna I never imagined that a small regional theatre in a place like this would be so impressive. Just the auditorium itself was much larger than I expected and the small bar in the foyer was cheap but more than adequate. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Add to this a superb show 'Madiba' that we saw with a youthful, vibrant, athletic and talented cast who portrayed the storyline with much vigor and enthusiasm.

Second or third time we have seen a show here. The seats are comfy and there is good leg room. Row E certainly did it for us.
There isn't a lot of foyer seating prior to show but the theatre compensates well.

What an awesome night! Venue was great and comfy and the show was hilarious as! Parking was no worries even in a packed show. I get to select a seat when I booked my tickets. Seats are cushioned and not those plastic seats.

Full house... great seats with plenty of leg room to get up and dance during the finale. Had to get there early to get parking close to the theatre.
