Manchester Theatre News & Reviews
Great theatre for all to enjoy in Manchester throughout 2023!Highlights in Manchester in 2023
Last year, Manchester was full of theatre, live performance, and incredible experiences that gifted us the opportunity of escapism, magic, and undeniable memories. We laughed, cried, were bamboozled, had our minds blown, and forged new friendships through the overwhelming amount of performing arts and events that were available in our incredible city.
With such an overwhelming wealth of theatre on offer, it is no wonder that people now travel from all across the country, and even from across the globe, to be a part of our vibrant city. And the future is still promising to shine an even bigger spotlight on Manchester, with new venues such as Co-op Live Arena and Factory International due to open this year.
With loads of great shows coming up, we've compiled just some of the highlights coming up in 2023...
Even after narrowing it down, we have over 100 shows for you to browse!
