The place is awesome restoration of a old theater. I am sure that the do not revue the acts that they book but they may want to start. We went to see a tribute band for Fleetwood mac and what a let down. high priced and not even close to the real ones. Sorry we wasted the money.

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
