As with many older theaters, there isn't always a lot of leg room in the seats. But there isn't a bad seat in the house when viewing shows and every level has a good view. I actually like the mezzanine best.

What a great theater with so much character. I would recommend sitting by the aisle or balcony so you will have more leg room. But over all a great location to get a drink or a meal before or after the show.

I arrived just on time for a Bulldog Days event, so the only seating left was in the balcony. I felt like I had to climb 10 flights of stairs to get there, and it was a steep hike. Next time I will get here early to get floor seating. Hard to move around during reception for parents after the... More

The venue is awesome, the show was great! The cast played on stage be for the actual performance and the audience was permitted on stage while they sang and danced. what a great time and what a great show. I cant wait to go back!

Visited the Shubert for the opening night of Once. The theater is absolutely stunning on the inside. The seats are very comfortable which is pretty important for a 2.5 hour show. The staff are friendly and helpful. They all seemed genuinely happy to help or offer assistance. The show space was really nice as well. We were seated towards the... More

The ambience adds to any performance; very classy and elegant. Have seen countless musicals and other performances here; always great, never disapponted. Have been in the "cheap seats" and orchestra center: enjoyed it all. Found great gifts in the store: easy shopping when we lived in the area. Would recommend a trip from anywhere to visit.

while I love a trip to NYC- the productions I see at the Shubert in New Haven are actually just as good time after time. This year I saw Christmas Carole and it was well done, sets costumes and performance very good. Then we saw the Nutcracker- loved it ! I've seen several musical performances and a few talk show...

If you haven't seen Blue Man Group, it is a must see. Show was very audience interactive. When the lights came on I thought it was intermission, but was I surprised that almost 2 hours went by! Hint, hint! Don 't sit in the first 5 rows or so because you'll be draped on plastic!
