Just attended a Tommy Emmanuel performance last weekend at the Landmark Theater. This is my second Tommy Emmanuel performance I have been to here. This theater is just beautiful and the sound is great. Always look forward to attending shows here.

I paid full price for an orchestra seat & drove 3 hours for a Broadway performance. During the 1st act, over a dozen people were admitted. In their futile effort to locate seat assignments in the dark, they blocked the stage. No usher came to assist. Finding the situation unacceptable, I went to the house manager. I told him I... More

M M, I'm so sorry about your experience at Wicked. I'm glad you received a refund. This will be passed along to the house manager's superiors. We apologize for his rudeness and poor management. My apologies again, Jackie More

Awesome choice for the venue. An old very intriguing place with high ceilings. Great art work and design. They are remodeling the theater and preserving all the old design and paintings. Acoustics worked great and the Moody's were absolute awesome. Wold definitely attend another concert there.

The building had really intriguing art and design. The main problem was no room for concession line and people everywhere in no line or form. The sound in venue was really good and clear. However, the seating was very uncomfortable and too close. There was no leg room and you literally touched people on each side. In order to leave... More

The Landmark Theater is a great venue for shows like The Jersey Boys. The theater has undergone (and still is undergoing) renovations that have made it quite nice. They have managed to retain the history and beauty of the theaters look / feel yet increased the comforts (like more restrooms that are updated and modern). Acoustics are good and the... More

We were three couples who went to see Jersey Boys after dinner out. Our seats, though the most expensive, were right behind the sound board. So the light was quite annoying The 60 plus million renovation though not finished is evident. The seats were comfortable and there was ample leg room The sound was good even though the actor playing... More

Sat in the grand Tier and had I been further down, there would not have been a problem We were in row H The bathrooms on... More

I give the theater an overall score of 4 but if you have to sit in the balcony, forget it. I am 5'11" and it was unbearable. The renovations are nice, the theater is acoustically OK but I will never again sit in the balcony.
