My wife and I went to see "Dirty Dancing" I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was and the parking garage is attached to the theater. No need to go outside just park, get in the elevator and get off directly in the lobby. Nice !!!!!

Love the Hippodrome! It is stunningly beautiful with no bad seat in the house. yes, the seats are a little close. Have seen The Lion King, Les Miserables and Wicked here. Helpful, friendly staff, large lobby. Easy drive in from Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia or Western Maryland. Multi-level parking garage right adjacent to theatre for easy entry and exit....

Lovely interior but the seating is terible. I'm tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. Very uncomfortable!!!!

Saw Wicked at the Hippodrome. This was my first time at this theater - it is beautiful. Parking in an attached garage was easy, there is an elevator from the garage into the theater. Staff at Hippodrome was wonderful - we had a scheduling problem with my tickets - they easily fixed my problem and I was able to see... More

Saw this musical on Sunday, April 26th, 2015 at 1pm. This theatre was beautiful. We sat in the orchestra section and dead center seats. They were perfect. Had no problem with the seats, actually they were very comfy. Loved the location of this place and all the amenities there. The musical was the best I've seen so far, and I... More

Saw Wicked there and highly recommend both the show and the venue but be warned - the seats are very, very tight at least in the upper balcony. You will become very intimate with your neighbor.

The Broadway shows come to Balitmore a half a dozen times a year and this is the venue. A theater built in the 1930's or so, that has been lovingly maintained, with great acoustics and sight line. Deceptively large(2200 seats), but with an intimate feel--wonderful place to see a show.

We went to the Hippodrome to see Wicked. We ate a nice dinner in Little Italy before the show at Sabatino's. We were a group of 6 who bought our tickets online. It was easily accessible from either 295 or I-95. There was a parking facility a half of a block north of the theatre and it was only $11.... More

Saw Wicked here in early April. Very impressed with the decoration of the theatre, as well as the architecture. They did an amazing job with the renovations, you can see pictures of before and after and it is truly amazing. Restrooms are plentiful. Parking is plentiful,and you can even prepurchase your parking tickets. The area is also safe to walk... More
