The Keller is the most used, big theater in Portland and it shows. Pretty much the only place to see a Broadway musical in the city. The lobby is tiny and if the weather is cold or rainy its usually PACKED.

while on vacation some freinds treated us to a show at the keller auditorium. The venue was pretty small compared to what we are used to, but the quality of the show was really good and the crowd was really into it so that made it a fantastic place to see a show.

Keller is a comfortable venue. Seats were very comfortable, a good view of the stage. Our third year of seeing the "Nutcracker" at the Keller.

We enjoyed seeing the Nutcracker with full orchestra. The whole evening was a delight. If you don't think you like ballet go to this at Christmas time for a treat.

I have been to the Keller Auditorium for a few different shows over the years; the most recent was Riverdance in 2015. This is one of the few auditoriums where I believe there truly isn't a "bad seat" in the house. The professional lighting and sound is appreciated (the only thing worse than not hearing those on stage is to... More

My husband and I visited this theater Nov. 2016 for a Sturgil Simpson concert.You had to keep a lid on your drinks in the auditorium, you were not allowed to carry food with you into the seating area, the staff was nice but overly stuffy. There was no re-entry whatsoever once your ticket was scanned and the place was just... More

Went to the 2016 Singing Christmas Tree performance which returned to the Keller Auditorium this year. Performance was outstanding. Music as well as dance and performance. Two hours of delightful holiday experiences.

The auditorium was renovated at the beginning of the 2000s and definitely benefited from it. Unfortunately, it still has a lot of issues with sound. Different shows perform here and the Portland Opera usually plays here. The seats are of a wide range of quality. Try to avoid the wings and under the balcony. The top balcony can be challenging...
