You know you’re going to see a first-rate performance here since it is THE BEST SHOW IN TOWN for cultural events in Orange County. I see no reason not to give top-notch reviews for anything related to the performances or the facility itself. Elegant venue, comfy seats, OC glitterati ... a great place to take a date. Here are some... More

All of the big shows are done here. Located just across the street from South Coast Plaza (boasting some of the best shopping in southern california) you're sure to be pleased with your theater experience. I've seen Wicked there, twice, and you'd swear you were on Broadway. Fantastic.

This is actually called Segerstrom Performing Arts Center now. It's a great venue for shows, musicals, and symphonies! I've seen Rent, Chicago, Anna Karenina, Swan Lake, The Book of Mormon, Yoshiki Classical, and the Pacific Symphony perform "From Screen to Score" here, and every time has been a positive experience. The acoustics here are amazing. The actual center for the... More

A very nice venue to watch a musical. We were in the 2nd row of the balcony but there didn't really seem to be a bad seat in the house. Even with a sellout it didn't seem overcrowded or have particularly long lines. Parking was convenient but had to run to an ATM since they only took cash.

Opening night, last night, what a night. You do not need to know it's about 4 who made it big, who had their own versions of the past that we each have, who sang and danced with their lyrics and music into our minds and hearts so many years ago now, because you already know all that. The four finely... More

It is so nice having such a great center for the arts in my backyard. There is really not a bad seat in the house, and it is refreshing to see that all of the best shows are now performing in OC. My most recent visit was for Book of Mormon, which was great. The Concert Hall is a very... More
