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

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

All that the Woodruff Arts Center hosts is wonderful to see...grand enough for productions and intimate enough to enjoy one on one with the performers.
