The New Alexandra Theatre isn’t a new theatre. It somehow got given the ‘new’ to the name of it last December – no idea why, no reason why – but that’s against the point. The Alex as it’s known locally, is Birmigham’s ATG (Ambassador Theatre Group) theatre. 99.9% of it’s shows are touring shows which have been to the other ATG theatres in the country so expect Grease, Colin Fry the medium, and those awful tribute act shows. It’s a strange building, and you have to be careful as on more than one occassion I have been there and had a broken seat so spent the first act with my knees holding my body weight. You might also recognise the blue painted interior from the ITV show, Britain’s Got Talent as it shares the Birmingham auditions with the Hippodrome.
