If you ever have a change to see a musical production at this grand old theatre, run, don't walk. Do take the subway. The building is designed as an art piece from the 20s. Make sure to walk around..... and don't run into anyone because the ceiling will capture you and won't let go. The productions are all excellent, the... More

We saw Wicked today in this wonderful theatre. Each production has been excellent. The sound is wonderful, I am always impressed that even in the mezzanine you can hear everything. The Art Deco is well maintained and lovely. Bathrooms can have a long wait during intermission so plan accordingly. Tip: mezzanine has "stadium" type seating if you want a mostly... More

Hadn't been here since I was a child many years ago. This historic special place has aged well. The décor is interesting - everywhere you look ....and the theater doesn't really have "bad seats". Thoroughly enjoyed "Wicked"! If you need the restroom at intermission - hurry - the line (switchbacks!) fills quickly!

The theater is a work or art in itself. Add to that the shows, sound, seating, staff, and you have a recipe for a wonderful experience. Definitely worth the visit for the experience of old style elegance.

We recently saw Wicked here. It's such a beautiful venue; I enjoyed looking around the lobby before the show. The acoustics were good and the seats were comfortable. I didn't brave the bathroom line at intermission because I was afraid I'd never get through in time and I didn't want to miss a minute of the show. You are permitted... More

We have attended performances at Pantages Theatre on two occasions: "The Book of Mormon", which btw is the funniest production ever, and most recently, "Wicked". The theatre is indeed a beautiful treasure, seats are adequately comfortable, and sound system is excellent.

Beautiful historic theatre, great sounds, good staff. Concession and ushering staff were both great! Seats were not too expensive and all provide a great view due to size of theatre. Parking was near by and felt relatively safe.

Historic location, aged but in good condition. It is a clean and comfortable location to see a show. Most seats are good and the sound system is good. Worth seeing a live show at the location.

We just saw KINKY BOOTS at the Pantages! As always the theater was a wonderful experience- great view from all seats. Sound was fantastic. Such an incredibly beautiful, ornate, historic theater. Parking is never a problem!

OK, I saw Pippin nearly a month ago, and just getting around to writing about the Theatre. The show was great! We sat in the first Mezzanine and could see and hear everything well. Now for the Theatre; If you're in the area and have an interest in Art Deco and historic styling, this is a MUST-SEE theatre. The decor... More
