We attended a small reception here and it was a great environment. The deco was beautiful with great staff. The food was amazing.

Wonderful ambiance for the classic and historical Grand Theater. I have attended several events at The Grand Theater, and there is not a bad seat in the theater.

For the size of Wausau, we are very fortunate to have the Grand Theatre and all the great entertainment brought here. There is a great variety giving people the option to see many shows they would not be exposed to or have the chance to see otherwise.

We have been to several concerts there and have never been disappointed. You can pick your own seats from a chart and we have never had a bad one

I watch the venues for top Broadway shows in the WI area and have seen several at the Grand and have never been disappointed. There isn't a bad seat in the house as far as musicals go, and the seats themselves are very comfortable too! They have a wonderful staff that are knowledgeable and friendly and that is another plus,... More

Thanks for your kind words about The Grand. Even in a changing Broadway environment, we are committed to making sure Broadway has a home in Central Wisconsin.

The Grand Theater brings professional entertainers to Wausau. Ranging from Marty Stuart to Danu to Russian Ballet and you get a sense of the range of entertainment that The Grand offers. With only about 1500 seats the acts are up close and personal. Each year it's a pleasant surprise to discover the acts that will perform at The Grand.

We attended the Bob and Tom Comedy all-stars. The sound for stand up comedy was excellent. The interior is fabulous.

Lots of great shows, the price isn't always right, but I constantly watch to see who is coming and when the price is right it is certainly worth checking out a show.

We took our children yearly to the Grand Theater to see ballet, musicals, and performers. It was always a positive experience. My most recent visit was not as positive. We went with another couple to hear the blue grass band "Trampled By Turtles", one of our favorite bands. Unfortunately, the staff at The Grand were unaware of what a "Turtles"... More

Thanks so much for your review. We greatly appreciate your support of The Grand, and hate that you had a negative experience at Trampled by Turtles. One item that I'm working on as I begin my tenure here at The Grand is making sure that we provide the best customer experience for all of our shows, be it the highest... More
