I have season tickets for Broadway show that are traveling around the country and also for Music Theatre of Wichita that performs during the summer. We are very fortunate to have so many great shows in a town our size. Last show was Sisters Act.

I was there for the Joe Bonuamassa concert. Venue was great for sound. Comfortable seating. Balcony seats. Only thing lacking was the selection of concessions. Kind you would get if the circus was there.

Seating great, acoustices good. But there is no center aisle so people seated in the middle of rows have to walk a long way disturbing already seated guests. A poor design.

We have been here a couple of times. It has a good layout. The seating is well spaced. Food and drinks are expensive, but everything else is great.

We visited here for the 2014 POCI car show. Three rooms full of great Pontiacs from every era. The facility was well air conditioned and clean. Metered parking was cheap cheap and easily accessible. Food at the snack bar super expensive thought. Eat before you go, and get a drink at the water fountain.

Great symphony and other music programs. Musical theater provides a wide variety of programs that are 1st rate. Numerous civic programs are hosted in the Convention Center - everything from the Flower and Garden Shop to Custom Auto Events.

I really enjoyed the opera at the Century II. They even had a screen above the stage that gave subtitles for the arias in the opera, which was a huge help. The orchestra & the singers were amazing. The center has two concession stands that included pastries & yummy chocolates. The seating was different than I've seen before. Seat 1... More

The Three Phantom's had each played that role on Broadway at one time or another plus many other roles. Their voices were so beautiful and the symphony backed them up perfectly on the show tunes. We loved it.

This landmark from the late 60s accomodated our large family conference comfortably. The main problem is lack of much in the way of food service in the area aroung the center, especially on the weekend when the business district goes dormant. The Hyatt Hotel adjoins and does have bar and food and coffee service but can get pricy for big... More

I was invited at the last minute to attend "The King and I" put on by Musical Theatre Wichita and it was delightful. I enjoyed it immensely and can hardly wait to go again. The lobby got a bit warm while waiting for the doors to open but the theatre itself was comfortable (I did see a few women wearing... More
