I'd like to give this a 5 star review because we really enjoyed the show however the venue could best be described as a dump. I love historic theaters and seek them out. I had not been to a show at the Murat in over a decade and was amazed out how run down the building has become. My seat... More

Great play part of the Indianapolis on Broadway series. Theater is older building- beautiful architectural design. Broadway professional singing and great sets.

We sat in orchestra level, row x. had some open seats on this row so tried to reposition but a very foul sewage stench wafted in periodically - far from subtle, and very foul. If smells bother you, you'd be very distracted by this stench. I know a likely rare complaint - foul smell causing a negative experience at an... More

This is a nice place to see a show, seems as though most seats have a decent view of the stage. We were in row kk, orchestra. This is kind of just too far back for my liking. A few of the seats near the aisle were obstructed by a giant pole. Event parking, $10. I would definitely go there... More

The Murat is a fantastic venue - have been visiting this place for twenty years, and it's great to see that they haven't taken out any of the old architecture. The Murat is one of the few beautiful concert structures in Indianapolis, and I'm glad to see that it's still being used by many different, unique acts!

Attended a folk music singer/songwriter show here in November 2016. The performers were great and this review focuses mainly on the failing of the venue. Staff members outside doors insisted you needed to show ID and get wristband to purchase alcohol inside. Wristband ended up hidden under coat sleeve and no staff member at any of the bars visited asked... More

No matter the seat you are close to the stage action. The interior is majestic- an old Shriners facility that has been left intact and restored. The food and refreshments are very good and plenty of room in the restrooms, preventing long lines. Parking is adjacent to the building and box office is just inside the building- where you can...
