Joan Armatradiing and Al Janrreau were awesome!

I go for the great talent and not for the cushy chairs. I saw Joan Armatrading and Al Jarreau at two shows over the past week. I must say I was a tiny bit concerned about the... read more

The "welded together folding chairs" were the most uncomfortable seats possible. Smaller than airplane seating, worn out padding and impossible to find a position that didn't hurt my bum. The sound was scratchy and outdated. Very unfortunate for such a quaint and personal venue. I did notice a huge and well stocked liquor bar, probably aimed at getting us drunk... More

This place has Seats like rocks --airplane seats are more comfortable, and horrible audio-- Could not hear singers voice or words to songs! When the singer Joan Armatrading repeatedly asked for power to her piano nothing was resolved for about half an hour. Of course no refunds at this venue It is supposed to be renovated with completion in three... More

I go for the great talent and not for the cushy chairs. I saw Joan Armatrading and Al Jarreau at two shows over the past week. I must say I was a tiny bit concerned about the venue after reading reviews from negative nellies online. I am so glad I did not pass up two great concerts after reading the... More

This Theatre was such a nice surprise. We were visiting family in the Orlando area. My brother in law asked me if we would join them for a concert at the Plaza Live Theatre. I wasn't familiar with Delbert's music. I'm so glad we went, the theatre had a great sound system, we were in the balcony so had a... More

My wife and I booked to go to see one of the best solo fingerpicking guitar players in the world (Tommy Emmanuel) play here and it was a magical event. Sure this theater is a little older but the atmosphere and ambience of the place is fantastic. Yes, the seating is a little basic, (the seats are actually padded, contrary... More

Live Theatre was more like a bar scene setting in checking in. Outside check in; bouncers putting on wrist bands; another one scanning ticket. Once inside large lobby with large bar area. We seriously thought it was at a bar club. Seating was terrible; very small metal chairs, way to many. A normal size person can't even sit in their... More

The Orlando Symphony purchased this popular theater as a rehersal hall, it is also used for some amazing music shows and plays. Lots of great places to eat near by and their ticket prices are always fair (by todays market) JAZZ, POP,ROCK and FOLK that need a smaller venue are always great here

We bought the Summer Concert Series and while the music was absolutely the best - the venue is not ready for a comfortable, enjoyable experience. The lobby smells musty and damp, the carpets in the theatre area still have ground gum from probably 20 years ago, the seats are portable folding chairs with no arms that are torturous after 1...

Took my 13 year old to this venue for a concert. The place looked rough on the outside, but the inside was very nice for a music venue. The area for fans to stand to watch the bands is on a slope, so even people in the back can still see. That is a plus. There is a balcony at... More
