Saw a couple of my favorite artists here, never thought they could sound better than they already did, but the state theatre is a beautiful venue!

Love seeing musicals here. Gorgeous old theater. Great sound. Sonderful views of the stage. Long lines for bathrooms at intermission, so make sure you go before it starts.

My wife and I have attended both a concert and a comedy show at this theater this year. Both of our experiences were very positive.

Fun place for an evening. VERY overpriced drinks!! Two cocktails cost us $33. Next time we'll bring our own water in with us.

I can understand the dilemma for the owners of State Theatre. On the one hand it is historic, the architecture, the artwork, the whole look and feel is very 1921, the year it was built.

A grand theater with great old fashioned style. This a great place to see any production. I don't think there is a bad seat in this house. A cultural treat. If you have't seen a show here you are missing out.

This theatre is drop dead gorgeous on the inside. The plays and entertainers I have seen here are very comparable to New York. Parking is easy and there are several great restaurants nearby.
