Seen musical acts, not Opera, but I like those

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.

Such a little gem of a place. Mrs. M and I have seen several concerts here and we always have a wonderful time. The volunteers are friendly and everywhere you look you meet a couple more. Here's a tip, make a dinner reservation at Pochi's and have a great meal before the show. It's only two blocks away. Not much... More

This is an old venue. Seats are old and somewhat narrow. We sat in row A. Had a great view of the stage and the performers, just a bit crowded. People were allowed to bring drinks into the viewing area.. there were several people around us that were a bit tipsy, and the smell of alcohol was prevalent. Lewis was... More
