Nice venue

We have seen a few shows at this venue and enjoyed them all. I don't think that there is a bad seat in the house.

Awesome concert. Theatre was great. Very friendly staff and music sounded perfect. I would recommend seeing any musical performance there.

I had performed before with One Voice Chorus in this venue before just outside of the theater, but had never had the chance to actually see a show here before. Mamma Mia! was a spectacular show in itself, but the venue was really nice, too. All I could complain about is how close and small the seating is, but even... More

From the time I called for tickets through the end of the show, it was a pleasurable experience. The operators are very helpful and will not stop until you are satisfied.Changing seats, adding seats, switching shows or dates are no problem for them. At the show, the ushers are very helpful and sociable. They will even suggest other show to... More

I have been here many times to see the symphony, plays such as Phantom of the Opera, to hear singers such as Linda Edder and comedians like Joan Rivers & more. We are lucky to have such a beautiful place for music and the arts downtown. The ushers are extremely helpful and friendly, the venue itself is in pristine condition.... More

Our family saw a fabulous performance of Annie here. The staff was so helpful when my husband arrived late and needed to find us. Great place!

Have always loved attending shows at the Blumenthal. Recently took my daughter to see Annie and it was indeed another wonderful time. The ushers are friendly, the venue is kept nice and clean. The only negative things I would mention, if you require a little more space for seating, make sure you get an aisle seat or maybe a box... More

Beautiful interior marred by too-small seats pushed too close together and poor ventilation. Sitting through a show can feel like torture. Also, the ventilation is lousy. The balcony is often too hot, and there is not enough air flow to ease the suffering if someone near you is having an active night, biologically speaking. The Knight Theater isn't as lavish... More

Spend a fun evening here in the smaller venue watching "dixie's 's tuberware party" and had a ball. This was really funny and the venue and staff were wonderful. We'll be back.
