There are even free seats in the back. They recently in past couple of years installed new quieter fans to keep a breeze going on a hot summer evening. Nothing better than a great play outdoors with the stars overhead. I've not seen a bad production yet. http://www.muny.org/

The MUNY, In Beautiful Forest Park, With The World's Largest Outdoor Stage, Is TRULY UNIQUE! It Has Inspired Me Throughout My Life (As A Child I Sat In The Hundreds of FREE SEATS At The Back of The Audience For Every Performance)! Every Summer It Produces 6-Professional Weeklong Broadway Musicals From June - August. A New "A/C" System Has Been... More

The outdoor theater called The Muny is a wonderful experience. In the summer, there is a different stage production each week. Seats are moderately priced, and there are FREE seats available for each show (first come, first serve.) The stage productions are first rate, most are musicals. Appeals to family members of all ages.

Wow! What an experience! The Muny is an outdoor theater with many awesome productions each summer. My advice is to go early in the year, as the later you go the hotter it gets! Very talented actors and singers, and an amazing atmosphere! This is a true St. Louis experience!

Where else can you visit a 100+ year old outdoor theatre that puts on Broadway shows? The Muny is not to be missed and they have Free Seats for every show. It can be hot in the summer in St. Louis but worth going to a Muny show not matter how hot it is. They have fans that help but... More

I used to buy season tickets, but St. Louis summers can be stifling. I found that by the second half of shows, I was so uncomfortable, that I often left early. They have installed new fans, and last summer's experience was a bit more pleasant. Bring cups of ice and as many cooling devices that you can. The shows are... More

Everything about the Muny is summer in St. Louis. It can be hot as all get out but that's St. Louis in a nutshell. If you go soon enough before the show starts, you can get into the free seats. These seats aren't the ideal view but you're also not paying anything for them. The shows are high quality and... More

Theater in an outdoor setting at Forest Park. There's just something more magical about watching a musical outside. Give's that Roman Theatre aura as the actors whisk across the stage and the music echoes into the night air. We always picnic outside the gates with a bottle of wine and cheese before the gates open. I love going to the... More

The Muny, which is located in Forest Park, has held many outdoor events, such as broadway like shows, concerts, etc... But since it is outdoor, you deal with the elements and it gets extremely hot and some times suffocating in the summertime...

This is a summer attraction when 6 to 7 popular broadway-type musicals are presented to a comfortable outdoor audience. The Muny often produces its own productions which may go on to Broadway. Wonderful entertainment for 100 years.
