Went to this area for two shows. Acoustics are great, seating is accommodating to short visitors like myself since seat seem to be alternating. Prices are comparable to most major venues. Parking is great. Love it

This is a very nice venue. Do yourself a favor and keep in mind this place is MUCH larger than any Broadway theatre. Fortunately, I got the heads up before I ever went there for the first time years ago. With the layout, if you are much further back than about the first 15 rows in Orchestra, you better bring...

My husband and I love to go to the Saturday 2 pm matinee for Broadway musicals. We go out to dinner afterwards, beating the crowds, and get home at an early hour. We are now season ticket holders and are in the 8th row for the full season. We have easy access to buy additional tickets and exchange tickets for... More

We went to see B.B. King at the Segerstrom Center For The Arts. There are NO bad seats. The acoustics were great and the venue is stunning. We avoided the $20 valet fee by parking across the street at the South Coast Plaza and walking in.

It is now called the Segerstrom Center For the Arts. The Center is comprised of two stunning buildings by renown architects. The type of performances include ballet, opera, Broadway musicals, cabaret, symphonies, and solo performing artists. Top notch!

Orange County's best performing arts venue! I love this place and have seen everything from operas to musicals here. I've been going for years and years. It's always great. Parking is easy. The interiors are much more modern than old world. The champagne at intermission is great :) I just wish OC still had opera!

My girlfriend and I attended a jazz concert on Saturday evening at the Samueli Theater. We had an enjoyable evening. The venue was an excellent choice to hear the jazz ensemble. I hope to return to the Samueli Theater in the future.

OCPAC is a beautiful theater. We've been buying the Broadway Series for several years now and find great value and enjoyment from it. We buy six shows and often times purchase tickets to other shows during the season. It makes for a great date night. The theater offers multiple price points for all budgets, The grounds are spectacular and there's... More
