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

Saw Porgy & Bess here in July. Was great to watch the show outdoor and the cast was wonderful. The venue is very good and the atmosphere was magical. I am especially impressed that they give away 2,000 seats for free to those who are willing to wait in line the day of the show, but was dismayed to see... More

Located in beautiful Forest Park, The Muny is a St. Louis must see. The production doesn't matter. Experiencing the vastness of this setting with 11,000 seats, including 1500 free seats at the very top of the house. From there, you'll want to have your binoculars but you will still enjoy the production. The sound is very good throughout the amphitheater.... More

Fantastic magical evening. we decided to take a last minute trip with the challenge of trying something new. We had the most beautiful weather to watch a performance under the stars. Romantic and unforgettable!

It is the best outdoor venue for musicals. We have bought tickets and sat in the free section, which are the back 9 rows. The line for the free seats starts about 4pm outside the gate at the top if the hill. Seats are individual with backs and arm rests. Once in the gate save as many seats as you... More

I was recently back in St. Louis visiting my parents, and we had a chance to go to the Muny. It was great to take my kids to a show, and let them experience outdoor theater like I did growing up. If you are in St. Louis in the summertime, this is a "must do" experience. The new fans they... More

I was first introduced to Broadway show tunes as a boy, under ten, at the MUNY- St. Louis Missouri's outdoor municipal theater. Of course my parents dragged me there every summer. No self-respecting boy would want to spend a sweltering summer evening listening to showtunes. But then the overture would begin and and the crowd hushed and the summer night... More

Nothing beats an entertainment treat like outdoor theater at a venue which has long been as much a part of St. Louis as the Gateway Arch. Choose A section seats as the pitch in the rows is better than those behind the A section. You will notice it only if you are struggling to see the stage when a cascade... More

The Muny is best enjoyed when it's not summer! I do enjoy the performances, but with all the crowds, heat and humidity, it wears on you. The sound system is great. I wish the seats were a little more comfy with more leg room, I think the humid weather just wears on you.
