My first time

The seats are comfortable and I've got plenty of leg room (I'm only 5'2" so I don't require much). It was pretty easy getting in - just a quick purse check and we were right in... read more

I have attended ballet and dance performances in New York City at Lincoln Center (both New York City Ballet and ABT) and other NYC venues, The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the Lyric in Baltimore and in Philadelphia at the Academy of Music many times over the years. So, when I bought a ticket to see Swan Lake at the... More

I love the beauty of this theater. I didn't love spending $150 for Orchestra seats that provided only limited view of the stage. My seats were BB 13/15; thankfully we saw Beautiful which didn't really require seeing the whole stage at once. I'm not sure but I believe the rows in front of us were actually HIGHER and I know...

My wife and I saw the musical "Beautiful" at the Hippodrome and enjoyed it immensely. Although we were in the 2nd to last row (EE) in the Orchestra the sightlines were excellent and the acoustics were also. No problem hearing any of the lyrics. The size of the seats did make us long for one of those spacious airplane seats,... More

We enjoyed our visit to this historic theater. It is so beautiful. The seating is tight in the upper balcony but, if you are engrossed in the show you hardly notice. Drinks are pricey. It is easy in and out, especially if you are walking. We were not uncomfortable walking back to our hotel after the show.

My wife and I just saw the musical Beautiful at the Hippodrome. It was amazing. We have been going there with season tickets the last 10 years and think it was the best music and singing we have heard in that time.

Our orchestra seats were in row U, pretty far back but good sight-lines and could hear dialog and songs easily. This performance of Beautiful was I would think the equal of a Broadway production. The show was a sold out and performers got lots of applause and a standing O at the end! Parking garage at the Grand did give... More

Growing up in the city, the theater was a once in a while treat. Sometimes birthdays or when our college was selling tickets for student prices. This theater is very expensive and so is their "snacks". I suggest eating before coming to the theater. This is a great theater to see Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and Mary Poppins.

Great venue for a show. Saw Mama Mia here. Would have given it a 4, but the leg room and seat width are uncomfortable.

We saw Mama Mia last night at The Hippodrome and it was a GREAT show! The cast and crew of Mama Mia did an incredible job. The actors and actresses were incredibly professional, talented and entertaining. The singing, dancing and musical production is really" broadway" quality! Our group of eight loved the show and enjoyed the little mini Abba concert... More
