We were there for the last show, the show was really really awesome! There were also a Christmas tree decorations competition in the hallway, very nicely decorated trees, each with style.

We saw a live production of Mary Poppins and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done!! We also enjoy the Festival of Trees each winter. However, rarely do we find other shows we want to attend. (They are either not "live" or they are risque or not interesting or ....)

I have been here many times and it is clean and the shows vary tending to focus on seniors. It could use more entertainment for varied ages. To keep it short we are satisfied with the overall experience but this place really needs to hire bartenders and make bigger bar area. Not only is it missing a ton of income... More

We attended the Mary Poppins matinee, and the show greatly exceeded my expectations. We were in awe of the Broadway worthy quality of performance. The vocals, drama, dance and music were spell binding! Watching the show took me back in time to the thrill I felt seeing the movie for my first time. I highly recommend this show for all... More

A great venue. Staff was pleasant. The bar is small but service was quick and there is ample seating in the lobby area. The theatre seating was comfortable and allowed for good sight lines from all sections.

We saw the musical review of 'Broadway: Andrew Lloyd Webber' on the June 22 matinee and it was excellent. The tribute featured songs and dancing from Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Tech Dreamcoat, Phantom, Jesus Christ Superstar, and others. The performances were outstanding with the cast of nine each having stunning voices and much talent. We thoroughly enjoyed it and... More

We've been to the Capitol Theatre many times and never been disappointed. The plays we've seen have always been very well done and the music events atmospheric in the intimate setting. The theatre has a beautifully painted ceiling and walls depicting a large garden and stars above. It creates a wonderful atmosphere. We have always had excellent seats but I... More

This building was completely restored. When you enter the theater you feel like you are entering an outdoor amphitheater. The acoustics are great and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.
