We enjoyed a high energy performance of 42nd Street here. Seating was great - no hassle getting to your seat and all seats had a good view of the stage. A nice walk here from having dinner across the street at South Coast Plaza. An OC treat!

We love the Segerstrom Center! We have seen so many performances here and loved every one. Our parking tip-grab a drink before the show at TGIFridays. They validate for parking in the structure next to them. It's a short walk from there to the Segerstrom and you will get to enjoy the nice grounds around the area.

We were seated in the worse possible place (wanted cheap tickets), and listened to the concert "From Budapest with Love" by violinist Zoltan Maga. The acoustics were excellent so the distance did not matter for the sound at all. The layout of the venue is beautiful and it was a pleasure to spend an evening there.

Wow. First time at the Segerstrom despite living in LA most of my life. What a beautiful venue! We saw Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club and the acoustics were wonderful. The seats were excellent - comfortable and attractively designed. And for this particular event, there was a DJ and dance floor set up outside for dancing before the show. If... More

Just watched it today...It was awesome!!! The costumes were very colorful. I really loved it! I could go again and watch and would never get tired of it. The actors were very good. The songs were oh so good to hear live!!! I highly recommend it. I was seated at the orchestra so I was close to the stage. I... More

This is a great place which offers wonderful and diverse artistic programs. It is not as crowded as other centers for the art. It is not cheap. Most events are on the pricy range. The parking is not very good and expensive.

This performing arts center is very convenient, freeway close and easy in and out. The theaters all have lots of good seats and even the least expensive seats have good sight lines. The variety of performances is very good.

The ballet was incredible — choreography, dancing, music, costumes. All divine. Array of colors and fabrics. Lead ballerina on Sunday's matinee (Sept. 27th) was technically very good (as much as I can tell, with an untrained eye). However, she rarely smiled or appeared happy to be dancing. Other dancers didn't seem nearly so serious. One big complaint I had was... More

Phenomenal Center for the Arts. All 3 venues I have visited are exceptional. All events they have are of the top quality. My endless gratitude to Segerstrom family for this source of joy. It's a pleasure and privilege to donate to this center every now and then. OC would never be such a beautiful place to be without this place.
