Went to lion king in November and was surprisingly good. Not quite as great as sitting close although the top seats are worth the money. We chose to sit 1 row behind the $100 each tickets...paid $44 each. Nice place overall. Beverages, easy accessible elevators(several)

Just got to see the MSO perform on their home stage for the first time. Incredible! I've seen them perform at other venues, but was excited to see them at 'home'. The music is so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes, truly food for the soul. Fantastic acoustics, comfortable seats, nice crowd, great location right in the heart of... More

My husband couldn't wait to see John Miller conduct. He was pleased with the building, location and seating. He had a very nice time at this concert

The theatre was fantastic. My husband really loved the "Pizza Cones" and wants to start a new trend in Michigan :) Everyone had a great time, the bands were a lot of fun to watch.... not to mention the amazing people watching! :)

Great place to watch broadway shows. Only been there once but with its location and its interior, would definitely go back again.

We attended The Phantom of the Opera in this gorgeous theatre. Although our seats were farther back than I usually like, we were still able to thoroughly enjoy the performance. It's a state of the art venue. The actors' voices and ability were outstanding as was the set design and orchestra. We will definitely return for future productions.

Urban redevelopment has been a mainstay of many cities across the USA with significant success. San Antonio is a prime example of how to do it right. RiverWalk in Milwaukee misses the mark that is set so high by other cities. The river and its surrounding building are not that nice to begin with. There is a lack of restaurants... More

It has always been something we have always wanted to see as a play. The Marcus Center is set up so nicely, very beautiful and well kept. I must also say all of the staff was pleasant and very patient...especially with the fact I had downloaded my tickets to my phone and had some difficulty pulling it up. We had... More
