Saw "Book of Mormon" on this visit, and had purchased better seats than we usually get. Really enjoyed the venue - helpful staff and a good experience. We parked on the street, which was perhaps a little less expensive but saves the long wait trying to get out of the parking garage after the show. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

Last night was a benefit show with Al Jarreau. The man can still entertain. Real talent lasts. Parking next to the Schubert can be trying if you aren't prepared. Parking for evening shows are a flat $8 rate. Take your TNT at the entrance to get in the garage, up the ramp to show parking and pay the fee, getting... More

We had orchestra seats, left side, under the loge boxes. Definitely a partial view and should be advertised as such. Bought a parking pass, which was advertised through Shubert. Sure it was great to park right next to the theater, but unless you're planning to eat at a nearby restaurant after the show, expect to wait an easy 30 minutes... More

The Shubert is a gem in New Haven, convenient to parking and restaurants. The seating is comfortable and visibility is pretty good no matter where you sit. They offer nice refreshments before the play and at intermission and you are allowed to bring things back to your seat. They have added restrooms on each level and they can host fund... More

wonderful from the play viewing aspect. issue is theater layout. Door to upstairs mezzanine right by a snack line. everyone entering funnels in through one door which slows down entry. Doors marked exits are not for exit after the play so can be confusing.

Of course, this is a legendary locale. When Leonard Starr was doing "Mary Perkins On Stage" he used this theatre once (I have a four panel original ink from that arc). Wife and I saw Les Mis, Cats, and Twelve Angry Men, and Christmas Carol. Classic acoustics. Not a bad seat in the house. Reasonable ($6 last time we went)... More

I've seen a couple of shows here and enjoyed the experience. The theater is easy to locate and there is plenty of parking available. It's a nice theater that has been upgraded/updated making for a nicer time. For the most part all the seats offer good views...just avoid the outer orchestra seats. Seats themselves are comfortable which isn't always easy... More

Easy to find, seats were comfortable for a change. Disliked the way patrons are shepherded about the building to their seats.

I have been to many plays in many venues. This is the first time I had the pleasure of visiting the Shubert theater (a little piece of American history). The venue is pleasant with only a few undesirable seats (stay away from outside orchestra seats). Went with a friend to see Seen Change, it was a bit confusing at first... More
