The Comedy Theatre
Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre retains a vital place in the city’s vibrant live entertainment scene. Built in 1928, the theatre is a blend of European flavours. The exterior is a replica of a Florentine palace and the interior shows a strong Spanish influence. The Comedy Theatre still maintains a lot of its original characteristics including balcony seating, a generous foyer and an elegant staircase.
It is not only comedy that you will find here. Audiences can enjoy a diverse range of theatre and live entertainment. With seating for 1000 patrons, famous shows to have played the Comedy Theatre stage include, Calendar Girls, Harp on the Willow, Waiting for Godot, The Rocky Horror Show, Avenue Q, Rock of Ages and Driving Miss Daisy.
Event though The Comedy Theatre is not as well known as other famous Theatre’s in Melbourne’s Theatre District, She is still just as beautiful and if not more glamorous as her well known neighbours and only a minutes walk from Rydges Melbourne’s front door.
