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

As someone native to the Chicagoland area, I'm very used to incredibly large theatres and was pleasently surprised at the coziness of this venue. It was gorgeous and well kept. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We went to see The Phantom of the Opera and it was a great experience. The smaller venue made me feel more enthralled and... More

The Marcus Center also includes a couple of outdoor stages that are used during summer for movies and kid friendly performances. We've attended many of the shows at the Kidz Stage- a much smaller venue they own just behind the main center. Tuesday through Thursday at 10 am during summer months you can see a variety of entertainers for free.... More

The venue is pretty typical for larger urban centers, but the Milwaukee Ballet elevates the hall to a top venue. I've been going for years to the ballet, and this company has been steadily improving to be a top quality production company with interesting and original works. They are a joy to watch, and work hard at appealing to all... More
