Segerstrom Center for the Arts is located across the street from South Coast Plaza. Their lineup has something for everyone depending on what your interest is. Six of us went to see Motown. It was excellent. I've also seen Wicked and The Addams Family at Segerstrom. Cost varies per performance and there are multiple seating sections to choose from. There... More

I have never had a bad seat here. We just watched Phantom of the Opera. We have seen dozens of programs here and never disappointed us. The only disappointment is that during a break when you go out for some fresh air and it is reserved, ironically, for smokers.

We have been there many times for ballets, concerts and Broadway shows. Great location and in a walking distance from South Coast Plaza shopping mall that is no shortage of gourmet food restaurants.

I've been to the Segerstrom Center many times, including 3x in the last couple of months--once for "Motown the Musical" and twice for "Phantom of the Opera." I LOVE seeing stage shows here! Not only do we avoid that dreaded drive into Los Angeles, but we love the simple elegance and cleanliness of Segerstrom Center, not to mention the great... More

Very elegant venue for an evening on the town. Beautiful and well kept facility. Easy to valet park. Short walk from mall if you want to save the cost of valet parking. Seats are very comfortable and the variety of seating prices makes this venue affordable for most. Ushers are very helpful and pleasant. Venue is close to restaurants and... More

My husband and I were here for Phantom of the Opera musical performance. Located right across South Coast Plaza (a shopping mecca. Lol.) Easy to find parking. Its contemporary building is beautiful. Wall of glass give a full view of outdoor and surroundings which is awesome. It does have a few concession and gifts stands. Pricey, of course.

The venue is right on par with Disney hall and the performance of Phantom was extraordinary! The architecture is fantastic as every floor has an outdoor balcony framed with a glass curtain wall. As good as it gets!

I've seen a lot of major Broadway musicals at this venue. always enjoyed the scenery and modern architecture of the hall, it's lovely. There are great restaurants near by. Don't spend your money on the drinks here. Too expensive

My nephew just had their wedding here. I didn't know they are available for rent. What an elegant place. Very modern, chick, classy place for photos.
