This 2000-seat theatre, part of The Star, is one of Sydney's homes for big-budget, glossy musical theatre. In recent years, it's hosted productions including Matilda, The Book of Mormon and Strictly Ballroom, and has got Hamilton coming its way in March 2021.
The theatre opened in 1997 but underwent a major renovation in 2017, which brought the dress circle and grand circle closer to the stage and made the whole theatre feel significantly more intimate. It's owned and operated by Foundation Theatres, which is also behind the Capitol Theatre.
