I came here to a concert by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, my niece was singing in the Missa Solemnis. I was impressed with the venue, good spacious seating, plenty of entrance and exit doors, and good acoustics. Also plenty of space outside the hall for milling around! I was able to see the Artists' dressing rooms, which I thought were... More

Went to see Christmas Carol at the Woodruff. Beautifully decorated for the holidays which was perfect for some holiday pictures. Went on week night when the play first open and go EXCELLENT seats (paid for balcony seats but after arriving was offered orchestra seating). Great singing and acting. This is a yearly tradition for me.

Have attended many plays at this venue. Very nice venue. Their isn't a bad seat in the house, but the balcony has best seats. Being in first row can be too close for some productions. Outside of the arts center, their is a nice museum that's adjacent. Venue has a limited theatre menu, but drinks are plentiful. Downside, the restrooms... More

Saw Wynton Marsalis & his band at Lincoln Art Center during The National Black Arts Festival. I'd never been inside before. Good acoustics. I'll go back for future shows now that I know the set up.

I love the friendly and semi-formal atmosphere here. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus have some of the best productions from Beethoven Symphony movements to Brahms Requiem and so much more! The tickets are pricey but totally worth it! It's kind of difficult to find parking there, but tip is to park in the neighborhood across there and pay the... More

Saw a great production called Whistling Psyche at the Black Box. Very intimate little theatre. Loved it!

This is the place to stay current on art and culture in general. I have seen some of the best art exhibits here. A great place to spend a relaxing afternoon!

Whether it is food, or culture, you will find something you like at the Center. No, I am not an employee or a marketer. It is sometimes just easier to say it as it is. I like the restaurants, although some can be pricey. I like the Alliance, and I like the museum. The only thing I don't like (and... More

We attended a play in the small theater. It was excellent. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The acting was superb! The Arts Center is Beautiful. While only there for the theater, we walked around to see the venue as it was breathtaking. The people of Atlanta are lucky to have this! We rode the MARTA to get there, too.... More
