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

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

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.
