The production was great but the couple that sat next to us was so loud and disrespectful. They became intoxicated and was literally making out I their seats. Very disturbing.

The Broadway shows that the Tivoli has brought to Chattanooga have been fantastic! I highly recommend going to one or buying the series. We have been very pleased with all of the shows we have seen and the quality of the productions.

Go back in time by taking in a performance at the Tivoli. All the gilt and glitter of a by-gone era is on display--and the acoustics in the place are surprisingly good. A great venue, highly recommended.

It is always such a pleasure to go to a production at the Tivoli! The Jersey boys was outstanding! We are so lucky to have a theater of this caliber in Chattanooga, first class!

We saw Jersey Boys here, show was good so was the theater. It’s an old building, still in the process of being refurbished and parts of the building have been restored to their original glory while others still need work but on the whole it’s...More

There are several parking lots near the Tovoli, none of them large. Go early. Parking is an issue Chattanooga wrestles with.
