One of the most modern attractions in Leeds but still among the most interesting, the West Yorkshire Playhouse was built in 1990 as part of a project to revitalize the local area and establish it as a cultural centre relevant to the modern age. Since its inception, the theatre has made quite a name for itself, with a stately appearance and wonderful performances that have won countless awards.
Those traveling in the area and looking for something to do should make certain to stop by here and, if possible, catch a show. During a standard season, the theatre runs at least four or five productions running for several weeks each, so if you’ll be around for a while, it should be easy to find something that appeals to you. Past hits have included adaptations of Don Quixote, as well as the children’s classic by C.S. Louis, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
