The auditorium is often kept far too warm for the amount of people inside and the seating is not comfortable and way too close together

Saw La Traviata this past week, seats 103 and 104 Orchestra. Fantastic acoustics and not one bad seat in the place. I’ve attended musicals and opera in Los Angeles and on Broadway so I steeled myself for, basically, a regional performance maybe a couple steps...More

We have made two recent visits to this fine venue. The acoustics are fabulous our 2 recent concert were the Austin Symphony and the Austin Opera. The theatre is an easy walk from most Downtown Hotels.

The Long Center is one of the premier theatre facilities in Austin hosting a wide variety of performances. Located in heart of downtown on the southern banks of Lady Bird Lake it surely stands out. It shares a large parking garage with Palmer Events Center...More

A home for many genres, this is a very welcoming performance space. Parking is reasonably well managed, access to seats is good, sight lines are clear. For a multipurpose space the acoustics are surprisingly good. I would say the only weak spot is the walk...More

It was a pleasant show for the most part but was not as professional or as interesting as I hoped. If they had left the religious stuff out, it would have been more professional and would not have seemed as juvenile as it did. The...More

I have the pleasure of visiting the Long Center 5-6 times per year for the ballet and the symphony, and everything about this venue is immensely satisfying. Efficient valet service, numerous bars, multiple entrances into the theater itself, clean restrooms and a truly impressive view...More

I always enjoy an event at the Long Center. The view of the city is amazing, the volunteers are always so friendly and I don't think you can have a bad seat in the main theater (I'm usually mezzanine or above for cost purposes). Every...More
