Although it’s easy to find THE STAGE DOOR, unfortunately it’s not so easy getting around the venue if you are disabled or struggle with stairs.
As the building is so old, there was no provision for anything like that at the time of it being built and regrettably, they have not been able to install any lifts to help with this due to the structure and layout of the building.
They are able to store a wheelchair in the box office area if you feel you are able to use the stairs once inside.
