This doesn’t feel like a proper theatre!
Mar 2020 • Couples
The lyrics were so unclear throughout Matilda. I love this musical. Was my fourth time seeing this - other times have been in Stratford when it first came out, and then twice in London - and was so so disappointing. I came with my husband hoping he would love it too, but it was totally underwhelming! Perhaps because it feels and sounds more like a cinema than a theatre? I felt as if we were straining to hear throughout. Despite a live orchestra, the music sounded much more like a recording. This was my first time at Solaire, and I definitely won’t be back. It’s not worth the money when we are lucky to go back to the UK once a year. Will catch shows in theatres on the West End instead.

Dave delivered of course; venue management could be better
Jan 2020
Watched at this venue for the first time. I was told that the chairs in the balcony were steep or angled so that audience members could see the stage better. And they were steep so better be careful specially in descending.

Though helpful in ushering us to our seats, the usher who assisted us did not know where the bathroom is and had to ask another usher.

As for the air-conditioning, it's not that cool inside for the night we watched Dave Chappelle, which was on January 15.

I saw some elderly and people who have disabilities struggle their way to their chairs. I know they have to stay in the seats they paid for but I guess that's the challenge to management on how they could accommodate these type of viewers.

I'm not sure if this is a concern of the production or the venue but it bothered me that the show did not start on time. I'm used to watching at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), and when they say the show starts at 8:00 p.m., it starts at exactly 8:00 p.m. The show started at 8:30 p.m.

With all of the above out of the way, the Mark Twain Prize awardee Dave Chappelle totally slayed that night. My throat was sore because of all the screaming, and shed some very happy tears while laughing at his set as well as Mo Amer's and Michelle Wolf's.

Long queues
Oct 2019 • Family
Have watched several shows here. Parking is free and plentiful but there is usually a rush as showtime nears. The facility has no control of when people show up but they should already be able to predict and add crews to inspect vehicles to prevent the queues from escalating. At all the shows we've seen there are also long queues to get photos at the various posters and billboards. To avoid all this queuing, best arrive early. One queue difficult to avoid is the queue to the restrooms at intermission. The restrooms are woefully undersized for a theater of this size. Particularly for the female restrooms, there's a risk the show will be restarting and you would still be in queue. Best to go before the show starts and avoid too much liquids.

Seats are comfortable, the temperature is just right for me. Location is convenient particularly now that NAIAX connects this area to SLEX in 10 to 15 minutes. Overall a much better venue for plays and musicals than CCP or Meralco Theater. You would hope they can just do something about all those queues.

Big Theater with Great Show
Oct 2019
Located beside Solaire Casino and resort, the Solaire theater is one of the biggest theater to host broadway type shows, the other located in the Newport Resorts World area. Saw the Sweeney Todd broadway play here. The theatre is on the opposide side of the casino, where they have many brand stoye and lots of restaurant outlets. The theater id big with big orchestra seats and balcony area. It has good accountics and big stage with good depth. They have been the stage for showing many foreign broadway shows and concerts.

A great place for a great show
Mar 2019 • Friends
I cannot think of another theatre where great shows can be held. The location where the theatre is nice enough for those who want to look around while waiting, there are comfy couches where you can wait too, though resto foods are quite expensive here, make sure your tummy is full, but you may try the buffet resto (1st floor) at 2k+ each if you’re craving for fresh and sumptuous foods. Since food is not allowed inside, i always have my box of minty candies. :-) There is also a store for souvenir items (quite expensive) outside the theatre. The A/C is cold enough in different seats that i’ve tried. I usually bring my cardigan if my place is too cold, just like at balcony left KK (Door 7 ent/exit), the farthest i’ve tried. This seat (Lion King 2nd time) is quite far too from the stage, it is too steep. Good thing, i already watched Lion King (Gala Night) seated at Premium Gold center EE (Door 5), the stage’s view is best here! I’ve had a better view of the stage from ochestra L when we watched West Side Story, as well as ochestra F (near the aisle) for Phantom of the Opera. Then, just a good view from ochestra B (door 2) when we watched Jose Marie Chan with Phil-Harmonic Orchestra. They also engaged the audience in some parts of the show. The only con here is the leg room, everybody will stand if you need to go out. Yes, they still do accept if you’re a few minutes late, my friends arrived 30 mins late coz i gave our Mama Mia tickets to them an hour or less before the show when my hubby had an emergency at work. As for the rides, your own car is always better, taxi cabs are seldom, take a grab car instead. For the photo op, there’s always a long queue before and after the show, so arrive early (an hour or more) or go out during the break. Smart casual attire will never go wrong, though some were in formal attire during the Lion King’s Gala Night and other shows.

Solaire Theater - A venue of local concerts and international musical productions.
Feb 2019
Excellent seatings, and acoustics is astounding. One even in bak rows can hear an actor’s sigh and a pin dropped. Have watched there “Pilita”, Lion King, Mama Mia, and Phantom of the Opera. The front row directly below the stage is not however the best seats. Chose the first row in balcony. Photography is strictly prohibited.
