My daughter got me tickets to this show. The amphitheater is awesome. Not a bad seat in the house that I could see. Plenty of vendors for drinks and food. (One word of caution: the ramps leading from the floor to the upper level can be pretty steep. ) It was an outrageous concert and my daughter had never been... More

Drive down from NE to attend Alabama Shakes concert with friends. Nice venue holding 8000 people, had plently of stands for refreshments, restrooms just too few and up on top level of theater. Friendly staff in all locations, and they do something I have never seen done before. They actually control the adult cheaters that always buy cheap seats and... More

Starlight is a comfortable, outdoor theater that holds shows from Broadway musicals to country western stars. I've only sat in the first few sections (from Orchestra up to Plaza), and viewing from any of those seems very good. As with anything, the closer the better. I wouldn't go for Terrace Seats for anything other than a huge show. Visibility and... More

I have been three times to this venue. It is a lovely outdoor theatre with good seats. It is not so huge, so that most of the seats are nice viewing. Decent sound system. We got there early and saw a small little performance before the actual show. It is by gate 4 and it is enough to keep you... More

Saw Florence and the Machine at the Starlight in 2012 and it was incredible. Great atmosphere. You get a different perspective seeing a concert here. A memory I have like it was yesterday!

Review: Starlight is an outdoor theatre with really great plays/musicals. When I went, the show was The Wizard of Oz. The actors were brilliant. I never saw them break character even once. The venue being outdoors, rain was a major problem. The actors handled it very professionally, ad-libbing to keep the audience interested. The downside was that it was incredibly... More

I went here to see the show Spamalot. The show was hilarious, and well put on. I have seen other shows there, and they are all well put on, and fun to see. If you are going try to sit closer. If you can’t, I sat halfway back, and binoculars were very handy. If you want to avoid lines as... More

I have been to the Starlight Theatre many times to see several different shows, including both musicals and concerts. Starlight theatre is a great experience if you're looking for a fun, family environment with an authentic theatre feel. This venue is great for many reasons. Because the theatre is outdoors, sometimes it can be a little hot, or the weather... More

Despite being in a bad part of town, upon entering the theater, you feel safe. We have seen the production Annie here and it was phenomenal. Also, we have been to two concerts here, No Doubt and Bob Dylan. Each had an appropriate amount of security and a nice atmosphere. Great clean outdoor theater!

The indoor theater was very nice. I thought the play was very funny. Parking was ok, and you did not feel cramped while in the theater.
