It was a please to see Les Miserables once again in this amazing place. The singing was great and the set was also beautiful. I saw this musical originally in London and I go every chance I get. On a very hot day, the place gets a little warm but they did provide free bottles of water at intermission, so... More

Saw the Buddy Holly show which was magnificent. The restored Victorian theater is simply gorgeous. I wish that I had brought my camera.

We went to one of the last performances of Les Mis at the Fulton. We were delighted and amazed at the theatre itself because it was beautifully restored and breath taking. The performance and performers were moving. If you do not enjoy theatre, they do have theatre tours. It is a must when you are in Lancaster!

Hubster and I traveled up to this theatre to see a "small-town" production of Les Miz. We were NOT disappointed! First of all, the theatre is beautiful! Very ornate and feels like a hidden gem! Located in downtown Lancaster, in the artsy district, you feel like you are a part of the family. The staff were wonderful and the performance... More

We enjoyed seeing Les Miserables last week at the Fulton Theater. We were able to purchase great seats the night before the show! The theater has a lot of character in its design and provides great acoustics. Every seat in the house is in a great location. The actors/actresses in the performance were excellent. Make it a point to see... More

5 stars for the production of Les Miz. Absolutely wonderful. We were in the very first row and let it be known that if you are in the 1st row of this theatre you are up close and personal with the production. 3 stars for the parking (and the workers who weren't able to tell us where the Market St...

Good seating, you get a good seat no matter where you are in the theater. Great show with good acoustics. Smaller theater than big cities but wonderful ceilings with fabulous details. Only fault is that they could do with more toilets as long waits in line. But don't let that put you off. Parking lot just across the street.

We had not been to the Fulton for several years. I got an email with a special price promotion for Les Miserables performances during 4th of July week. We took advantage of the offer and are glad we did. Fulton Theater is located in downtown Lancaster PA near lots of restaurants, the central market, specialty shops and adequate parking. Initially,... More

This is a fantastically restored old theater that has been in Lancaster "forever" (maybe over 100 years). Beautiful balcony, drapes, the who setting. Les Miserables is presently playing (live), and it's stunning. If you are in town, please do not miss visiting this historical establishment.
