This open air theater is the best way to experience a musical. I've seen great performances with all star casts at this location. I can't wait to see what shows will be a part of their summer season each year.

Professional actors/singers/dancers/orchestra performing well known musicals. First time there and booked seats in section A6 & A5. We saw Suessical the Musical and gave them a standing ovation. I expected a kids show and received a beautiful gift of art. Next time I'm in St. Louis I will book another seat at whatever show they're having.

This 11,000 seat outdoor theatre is a must see many times over. Each year it brings to St Louis a number of high quality musical plays. Because of it's size it's rarely at capacity, so it's easy to decide on any given day to just drop by, buy a ticket and have an evening of fun & pleasure. There are... More

If you want the free seats, carve out a good 4+ hours of wait time. We got into line about 4pm and were about halfway down the line. We got in and seated no problem when the gates opened at 7, but the show still did not start until 8. The families that brought chairs or blankets for sitting, puzzle... More

My boss surprised me with four tickets and a VIP parking pass to The (St. Louis) Muny's production of Seussical. My parents and son accompanied me to the Wednesday (7/23) evening performance. My son and I had never been to this venue before and my parents had not been to the Muny since the late 1960s. This was a real... More

Prices are good. Nice variety of shows. Great sound and view if weather is nice. Inside Forest Park so parking is free. Can eat there before or after the shows at outdoor tables. Would recommend to friends and would go again in the summer

The show quality was very good. Much more than I expected in St. Louis. Have went several times in the past few years. Seats are very reasonable and there are sections that are free on first come first serve basis. It is outdoors so be prepared. They do have very large cooling fans that do a nice job.

We found the MUNY by accident, and we were really glad that we did. We did not realize that the Largest and Oldest Outdoor Municipal Theatre was in Forest Park in St. Louis. Very comfortable seats, we looked up the information on-line at www.muny.org . Then it switched us to Metrotix and we ordered our tickets based on where we... More

This was recommended to us by friends. So glad we had the chance to give it a try! It's a very large theater completely outside. Lots of refreshment stands and bathrooms. We sat in section B6 near the back. We could not see the actors' faces at all but they put on a great show. We happened to see The... More

We have always enjoyed going to the Muny in Forest Park every summer, but now that they have installed the new, quiet fans that are able to be run during the performances, it is so much more enjoyable. It was a perfect evening temperature-wise for the performance of "The Addams Family" when we went, and the show was very cute... More
