“Top notch summer theater; management less so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Enjoyed "Around the World in 80 Days" recently at Hangar. Wonderful production.

Here is why we almost didn't see it.

Drove up to buy tickets at 4:50pm for 7 pm show.

The only sign I could see from my car was Ticket Office Closed.
What would you do if you were me? It was raining... would you get out of your car and look around? I almost left.

What the sign didn't say, BUT COULD HAVE, was "opens at 5 pm". That way anyone would have known when to come back, or, in my case, stick around for 10 minutes. Which I did. And saw a wonderful show!

I mentioned this to the ticket seller once I got it. I received one of those "are you from Mars?" looks.

If their goal is to sell tickets they should learn how to think like a customer.

“Great Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We were in Ithaca for our friend Joe Crookston's CD release concert. The Hangar was a great venue with excellent sound and sight lines. Joe packed the place but it was still quite comfortable.

The Hangar Theatre is a great regional theatre. Broadway stars at upstate prices. A great way to spend an evening in Ithaca.
