Went to see Chelsea Hotel production was excellent but experience was ruined by their snug low back breaking seats. Guess there okay with their 90 lb when wet geriatric clientele. The low brow movie houses have comfortable seats why cant they.

I've seen a concert and recently, A Christmas Carol, in the Maclab Theatre at The Citadel. We picked up our tickets the night of the show and arrived shortly before 7 and there was no line up at the Box office and we quickly got our tickets. The show started at 7:30 and there are 2 sets of doors that... More

We went to see the Capital City Burlesque - Holiday Fantasy performance at the Citadel Theatre last Saturday and were totally unimpressed with it and felt it was a total waste of money. We have seen good burlesque shows before and this one was nowhere near good! No class at all!!! The show was only just over an hour long,... More

Very well done as always. Really gets you into the spirit of Christmas. The cast, the props, talent: creates a fantastic show that draws you in and you can feel what the actors feel. Should be a tradition for all.

We have been going to the Citadel for over 25 years, beautiful venue, the garden area is very nice. We recently saw Evangeline, every seat is good, great sight lines to the stage and good acoustics. Lots of leg room even when people pass.

Located in the heart of the city, this theatre is a beautiful building, with lots of glass and indoor plants. Many couples choose this place for their wedding pictures. It has several theatres according to the need. We went to see the play:”Evangeline”, the tragic story of the Acadians expulsed from Nova Scotia by the British. We really enjoyed everything,... More

It is an absolutely beautiful theater to see shows in. We usually get season tickets for 3 shows per year. There is always a good variety to choose from. Try it!

I went to the Decemberist's show in July and the venue was just great. The staff were friendly and the seating is set up so there are no bad scenes. I also had my graduation ceremony here and the staff made the day a breeze.

No matter which play you see they are always professionally done and a great time. We generally buy season tickets to at least 5 plays
