Always a wonderful venue to see a show. We sat in the balcony and the view was perfect. The sound system in this theater is terrific. The Grand earns it's name.

Excellent playhouse. Not too big so you do not get lost in the crowd. Easy parking on the street. Good restaurant across the street to visit before the show. They have a variety of shows so you can be selective. Easy place to watch shows without the hassle of Philly or New York.

This is such a beautiful venue. I have been to many shows and it is always a great experience. The ushers are always friendly and willing to help. The sound is great and there is not a bad seat in the whole house. If you get the opportunity, check out Wilmington’s little treasure. You won’t be disappointed.

I have to say, The staff are wonderful. There's no doubt that the rock music acts are here to pay the bills, but the obviously opera staff treat people with tie-dyed... More

Been here a few times. Seen musical acts, not Opera, but I like the events I did see there. The seats are comfortable and the view is very good.

When you want to really enjoy music or theater in a friendly and intimate atmosphere, go the the Grand! I prefer it to many of the larger more prestigious halls in Philadelphia! Almost every seat ives you a direct view of the stage, and the Mezzanine Balcony is still super. The staff are most helpful and you can even get... More

If you visit Wilmington try to book a concert at the Grand Opera House. What a beautiful building with no bad seats. I have never had a bad experience.

I went there for The Sing-Off live performance. It's nice. There are 2 entrances, one on King St and another on Market St. Double Tree Hotel is conveniently located nearby.
