We did not actually see a show here. We were passing through town and asked if we could take a look inside. The staff member who answered the door then took us on a tour of the old place and showed us around whilst a rehearsal was going on. Fabulous hospitality - I would see a show there if I... More

Architecturally The Fulton is a gem that maintains the beauty and glory of the past. The shows that we have seen there are always first rate-- great sets and designs, professional actors.

Beautiful gem of a theater in Lancaster,PA. Productions generally of good to high quality, and since the seats were replace a bit ago, much more comfy. Prices reasonable. Parking downtown on some days/nights can be awkward. Not always. Wondeerful ice cream shop acroos the street.

My wife and I have seen three performances here and have been blown away every time. Stunning acting, beautiful old opera house, small crowds. What more could you ask? Book tickets early on their website, prices for every budget. Skip the refreshments in lobby and buy a drink across the street at Prince St Cafe.

Les Miserables was simply riveting. This is a beautiful, old theatre nested down-town Lancaster. Great talent.

The dancers were so talented.It was incredible the way they flipped & twisted in high heels.The men were very muscular & good looking. We were in the second row & felt like they were going to dance right on our laps. Our red hat... More

Went with close friends for a night out on the town in Lancaster. Both my husband and my friend had birthdays yesterday. Saw Dancing with a Twist. Beautiful theatre and the show was fabulous. Will be booking additional shows for the rest of the year. Making it even better is the fact that there are a number of wonderful restaurants... More

Been to 5+ shows here - every single one has been memorable... Historic theater, Broadway-quality talent, and affordable seating. I usually try to get a seat in the first row of the balcony section at the very top of the theater - not necessarily for people with a fear of heights, but you have an unimpeded view of everything on...

The Fulton has been a favorite venue in Lancaster for generations. Shows include theater, dance as well as concerts in a magnificently restored theater of days gone by. Season packages as well as individual ticket purchases meet the needs of a range of guests. Enjoy dinner at one if the many local restaurants for a wonderful evening on the town!
