We have enjoyed many entertainers there but those seats! After Ike they have pads (thank you), but your knees hit the back of the seat in front of you. Impossible to cross your legs. People going nuts all over the place trying to get comfortable. Men of stature might as well SRO. There are only a few areas to be comfortable in the entire theater but we are selfish and will keep the secret.

We have been going to The Grand 1894 Opera House going on 4 years and have never been disappointed. The building itself is gorgeous. The plays, concerts are amazing. Just saw Budd Holly last night it was definitely something not to be missed.

This was the first time I got to see the Texas Tenors and fell in love with them at that moment.

And there could have not been a better place to see them than at the Grand 1894, not a bad seat in the house!

Can't wait to go back to see the Texas Tenors again when they come back!
