Last Thursday we watched The Blue Man Group perform at The Theatre at Solaire. It's their first time in Manila and they certainly did not disappoint. Everything i've been hearing and seeing on previews exceeded my expectation. Truly a blend between theater, improv comedy, rock and dance concerts!

The Theatre has become the premiere venue for Concertus and Lunchbox Theater Productions. I just do not like the seats at the balcony. Very squeezed specially for tall people. Your knees will be against the head of the person right in front of you. Everything else is Grade A classy. Love it.

If you plan to watch, the Blue Man Group is up until Sunday September 25, 2016.

Watched the King of Pop Experience featuring Kenny Wizz. It was a one night only show.

Me and my bro are huge MJ FANS So we couldn'y miss it!

The show to be honest was just so-so. The front act sang some good "sing along" and familiar tunes. Even sang MJ's Man in the Mirror and Gone too soon. They had good voices and good blending as well.

When Kenny Wizz came out it started with a not so famous MJ song. I didn't like the flow or the set list line up. Wished he went for wanna be startin' something instead. Or at least follow MJ 's movie concert flow. I can also notice a problem with the audio throughout the show. There were weird sounds that you could hear while the show was ongoing. Also, Kenny could surely dance like MJ and is impressive as well for a guy who is 52! Yes, he admitted his age! Wow. But! He surely doesn't sound like MJ it was definitely noticeable.

What made the show fun was his audience interaction, his humilty and how he said That the concert was just a 2-hour escape from the busy real world outside. I love also how he would shout to the crowd and the crowd would copy back. He also came down to the audience a couple of times throughout the show.

There was also a young kid during the show who also dressed up like MJ and was dancing his heart out. Super cute 4 year old kid also stole the show and the hearts of many! I was lucky enough to speak to the kid during the short restroom break. He said he was a MJ fan since 2! He loved the song Billie Jean and he could moon walk! 127908128514 plus he sang billie jean in the restroom and showed us a sample of his moonwalk.

There was also a meet and greet after the show. The line was super long but we waited patiently. Kenny was super nice and genuine. Even though his legs were shaking from all the dancing he still agreed to stand up for a photo! Plus he signed our show tickets as well!

Many thanks for a great show! 127908127908127908

Last performance of Les Miserables in Manila last night was SUPERB. Seeing our very own Rachel Anne Go performing as Fantine and sung the much awaited "I DREAMED A DREAM" on stage of The Theatre by Solaire gave me goose-bump. Whoah! 128561 What a dramatic piece! 128079🏻128079🏻128079🏻

This is my 4th time watching a show inside The Theater by Solaire starting from Chicago, Singin' in the Rain, Nanta and lastly Les Miserables. 🤓

As expected, still the elegancy outside and inside The Theatre, from the carpet, CR, sofas, big LED screen, the signage, the furniture, etc... It's BRILLIANT! specially they will open more shops and restaurants downstairs.

You will noticed the combination of classic and modern structures of the The Theater, it is not big as expected but it's beautiful to see the color orange chairs combined in the dark theater... But they need to improved the seats to be more spacious.

Watched Les Mis with my sister last Friday and it was awesome! The Theatre was very classy, comfy seats, good air conditioning, good number of restroom cubicles. The only negative remark I have is about the configuration of the place, it was kind of hard to get to. Despite the signs, I found it very confusing to go around.

Getting dropped off in the place was confusing. And also, when leaving the place, my sister and I had to walk to the Main Lobby of the casino just so we could have a nice pick up point for the Uber ride we were getting.

Won't be coming back unless there's another good show to watch again. 9996

Definitely a night to remember! First time to visit and watch a play at the Theatre at Solaire. Les Miserables! I was all tears when I witnessed the cast perform! Sad Rachelle Anne Go was sick that time she didn't play Fantine.

Was so amazed with the professionalism of the stage actors and all the people behind the curtains! Very disciplined! Not a single noise would be heard when they're changing props and sets! Flawless!

Place has strong WiFi signal for free! Place was cold enough. You should bring jackets if you get easily chilled. Ushers also know what to do and are polite in assisting audience.

However the only problem I kinda noticed is that the sound of the voices do not surround the whole theatre. It just comes from the stage aided by mouse microphones and lapels. But I think the speakers were few to amplify the voices up to the balcony.

Anyway, nothing beats Les Mis! Been dreaming of watching this live because my grandfather usually plays his Les Mis album when we were still kids so there's a feeling of nostalgia to the songs. Literally cried in One Day More, God On High and Do You Hear The People Sing? Plus the curtain call gave me chills (and a lot of tears!) when all of us inside the theater stood up and applauded the cast for a job well done!

Watched Les Miserables with my sister last last week at The Theatre at Solaire Resort Casino. It's my third time there and still loved this modern and comfy theater. Well-maintained and the size of the theater is not too wide nor too narrow. This I think is the best theater in Manila for the cleanliness, comfy couches, top notch audio system, and size. One not so good thing was the legroom. It was a challenge having people pass by so the long-legged me had to keep on standing to give way. 128531

I'd like to share a tip of sorts... I always get the second cheapest ticket area price (I think called B Reserve) because it's right next to the Premium VIP area, which is the most expensive area. Both are located at the balcony. Weird that the most expensive area is there, because usually they're the ones right in front of the stage. Anyways, it's a win for wise musical goers like me? 128527128527128527 The view from that side is really good, in my opinion... Not too near that you can see the actors' facial expressions but you can see the whole set, top view. You may bring with you binoculars to watch them more closely.. You may also bring cardigans because their air conditioning works too well. A bit chilly at times haha! 10052️🌬

And the musical. I just have to say that it was sooooo good!!! Very talented actors, having one of our own singers, Rachel Ann Go, as Fantine (not the shampoo!) and I heard the young Cosette in one of the newer shows is also a locally grown talent. 128077🏻128077🏻 up until now, I am still in a Les Mis hangover. On My Own, I Dreamed a Dream, Do you hear the people sing, One Day More, are my favorite songs!!! I literally felt goosebumps. And the set was superb!!! Really had a lot of changes and variations that I did not expect!!! 128079🏻128079🏻128079🏻 some say the musical was underwhelming, Valjean was not as good, and etc. to me it was okay since it's my first time to watch the musical. I've only watched the movie (with Anne Hathaway and etc). Also, if you're the comparing type of person, the movie was more dramatic than the musical, like Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Fantine.

If you're a Les Mis or musical fan, you should not dare miss this! They're here until May 1. 128527128527

Gwen I I think there are two The Theatre entries here in | looloo. The other one has the name "The Theatre at Solaire". 128517128517128517

Last night was a big day for me and my officemates as we'll all be watching, for the first time in our lives, Broadway's longest running musical, as recorded in history - Les Miserables at The Theater at Solaire!

As my boss was an ultimate fan of theater plays, broadway and Cameron Macintosh himself, he decided to treat us all with orchestra seats at this highly renowned production. Can this get any more exciting!?

We left Mandaluyong at around 5PM and got to Solaire, after dinner, at around 7:30PM. Solaire is one of those prime malls wherein you can really feel extra class and sophistication with how it looks, from the inside and the outside.

The door greeters and staff were dressed really well, neat looking and extra polite in accommodating all our concerns. Upon entering from the main entrance, the casino shall be the first sight that you'll see. You'll definitely get tempted so yes, try your luck then.

We walked going to The Theater from the main entrance and it was a bit far. We passed through posh and classy restaurants, art exhibits and mix and match of high end stores. When we got at to our destination, we were assisted by staff who'll direct you to your door assignments.

The way leading to The Theater is like a way leading to an airplane. As we were assigned at door 3, we went down via an escalator and finally reached the entrance to the theater.

The Theater looked really brand new, polished and filled with character. Its simple interiors were given justice by its cleanliness and neatness. The lighting and ventilation were good too, not too dark or bright, hot or cold. I just hoped that their chairs had boosters, as what my boss said, for small people, like me. We were seated at the orchestra section which was already near towards the stage. Sad thing was that the person in front of me was tall so I found it hard to watch the production in a nice perspective.

The technicals of the theater were really good! Yes, it was a certainty that the production team enhanced these but still, everything went so well altogether. From the videos, to the lights, the sounds and the sets, everything was so perfect! Every bit of the production was worth watching for!

The 2 hours and 45 minutes greatness of Les Miserables' history was perfectly staged at The Theater at Solaire - perfect combination in every angle!

Watched Les Miserable here last Saturday and I was really impressed with the place... The lobby was really nice and spacious, A/C was cool, ushers very helpful... The place just exuded Class!

Upon entering, I liked that it wasn't really a huge theatre, we were able to see the stage from all sides However, when we were shown to our seats, I was soooooo disappointed with the small seats and the even smaller leg room 128561 it was cramped even for someone my size, my nephew who's 6'2 was seated behind me and kept bumping my seat 128529128534 It was also crazy hard to let people pass to get to their seats! Huge flaw for an otherwise beautiful theatre... Except for the seats and leg room, I loved everything else...

It's a beautiful theatre, and comfortable seats. Little leg room, but one wouldn't mind it what with the impeccably awesome sound system. Saw the first show of Les Miserables here for their Manila installment and it was just amazing! 128571

I love watching theater shows since when I was in highschool. I always look for new theater shows & I really make schedules for them. I watched several theater shows at the Theatre at Solaire. This place is great. The last time I watched here, I am beside Mrs. Gretchen Baretto. She is so pretty! Hahaha. Staffs are good, they will help you as long as they can but they do not allow you to take pictures inside the Theatre. The place has a low temperature, be sure to wear the appropriate dress.

Aside from being a huge foodie, I’m also into theater plays and musicals! But for the longest time, I’ve only been to CCP where I watched The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, etc. So being here in Solaire is a whole new experience for me.

A few months ago, I was very fortunate to be given premium tickets (by our client, Visa) to see Singing in the Rain here in Manila. The show was FANTASTIC and being in Solaire really added to the whole magic of it. The Theatre at Solaire is such a great place to hold this kind of engagement. Everything was really new and clean compared to CCP. Only edge of CCP is its historical and cultural ambience that somehow adds grandness and appeal to the shows it houses. The seats here were comfortable, the ushers were very nice and strict (which I like), and the sounds and lights were really top notch. It felt like I was watching a show in Vegas!

Only downside of The Theatre is accessibility. Not only that Solaire feels like it’s in the corner of the world, even The Theatre feels like it. We had to go through several flights of escalators and walk long hallways just to get to the show. For me, it’s not so ‘old-people’ friendly given the amount of walking and flights of stairs to be conquered. But overall, the whole place is really great.

The Theatre at Solaire did not disappoint and lived up to its promise of being a world-class entertainment facility.

The best theater I've been to in Manila, so far. Been here two times already. First visit was to watch Chicago then just last August, Singing In The Rain.

I loved how clean their theater is, their ushers were really friendly and accommodating, the very comfy couches that somehow made me want to doze off during the show, and of course the acoustics were really wonderful! Better than CCP's definitely! Only negative thing I noticed is the narrow leg room where I had to stand to let people pass. 128517

He had it coming... He only had himself to blame...
If you'd have been there, if you'd have seen it, you would have probably done the same!128077

The newly opened gem of Solaire, The Theater!128522

We watched Chicago last Saturday, our first time watching anything at their new theater... It was very clean, as expected... The seats were comfortable enough in a beautiful shade of tangerine... But the rows were so close together, we could barely make our way to our assigned seats... The seats were inclined enough that any tall person sitting in front of you will surely impede your line of vision... Good thing there was only one row in front of us before the aisle... I don't know if the view is better at the balcony, but people were commenting that this may be the case... The acoustics, on the other hand, were spot on... Each jazzy note could be heard clearly... Nice cool temperature too, btw...128522

I didn't like the fact that they let latecomers in, they were very bothersome and annoying... They did so during the beginning and after intermission... I hope they become stricter about theater rules as they go along...

It's the perfect play to watch in a small theater... I enjoyed Chicago immensely... 100841008410084

There's a bit more polishing to do, but it's a promising place and I'm looking forward to watching more great musicals and plays at this location!128077
