The architecture and history of this theatre is amazing but it is not well equipped for a Broadway tour play. We attended Wicked and the theater was full. The acoustics for the musical were poor and it was difficult to understand the lyrics. At intermission,...More

Every part of this place is beautiful, it feels bigger than it really is. Every part of this theater is picturesque. The low quality pictures dont really capture the detail out into this place.

We like to park in the Houston street garage. It's a flat rate and has a connecting door to the majestic for exiting after your show. You enter on the back street across from the La Mansion Hotel.
