“Great Theater Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

No matter where you sit, you can see and hear the performance. Saw Phantom of the Opera and it was fantastic! A true theatrical experience with the costumes, the highly skilled actors, the sets, the fog, just everything was done exceptionally well.

“Smaller venue for such a large city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

We went there for the annual flower show... Very small compared to the Philadelphia flower show... A lot of wasted space with little to show as to the displays and vendors. Mulch goes a longgggg way to fill in the space between exhibits. Electric cords were conceled under rugs too.... I thought it was very poorly thought out .

“Great shows but tiny dated forum!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

While I spent (what I thought) big money on nose bleed seats... I was disappointed in how dated the auditorim was. The lobby area, however, was as expected. I'll probably avoid future shows there until some updating/renovating is done. The auditorium is so unpleasant!

“Great Shows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

The Oncenter brings in many good shows. Being able to watch Broadway shows in a nearby city is a real treat.
