I was walking by and there was a crowd outside so I had a spare evening and was curious - I went to the ticket office and asked if they had spare tickets for the show - they are around $120, $80, $60 plus tax. I took a gamble and bought a $122 ticket AND believe it or not still... More

The Majestic Theater is not only historically beautiful; bit also, one of the best venue for so many various types of performances. We have been there for plays, musicals, musicians and others. Each time, the theater adapted to the need of the performance. Great Sound and Visibility from almost any angle. Most recently, we saw 'Rain: A tribute to the... More

Went to see and here Johnny Mathis and the sound is outstanding. The place is beautiful, reminds me of an era I would've wanted to live in. Personnel were very friendly and nice. One of the best experiences I had. You can see the artist from almost all seats. Will recommend to all.

I fell in love with this place back in October when my husband took us to see Beauty & The Beast. We were just there last weekend for the RAIN: A Tribute to The Beatles show and it was absolutely beautiful! It is walking distance from the Riverwalk, which is right around the corner. If you get the chance to... More

The theater is so gorgeous! So historic and very classy. Very small so you can't help but get a good seat. We got lucky and had front row seats in the Starlight Suite seating area which is usually for members only. Great view of the stage even though it was in the balcony -- again, small so almost any seat... More

We have visited the Majestic Theater over the years for many performances, and genres: Phantom of the Opera to David Copperfield. We saw the musical "Buddy" here. It makes any show that much more enjoyable. It is a beautiful venue that is a pure joy to tour. Any opportunity you may have to visit it, take it!

We went for the Lion King on New Year's Eve and it was amazing. It was sold out and super crowded but the staff and volunteers handled it well. Tips: Get there early and use the restroom before your show because we had an intermission and the bathrooms were totally full. There were over 90 women in line and 5... More

Recently visited THE MAJESTIC THEATRE for the (haven't counted) umpteenth time. We saw "Chicago" and enjoyed it very much! But we have (me and the boss) always enjoyed our visits there, no matter what was playing. The venue is beautiful and staff is wonderful!

So much to take in! We were lucky to stumble upon tickets to see The Lion King here. The attention to detail in the architecture and design of this lovely venue simply added to the ambience of the live performance. You are allowed to take photos inside the theatre (not during performance, of course)...something that's not allowed in all theaters.... More

We recently saw The Lion King at the Majestic Theater and I was highly impressed with the historical detail that still exists in the design. I wish there hadn't been shows scheduled during the day while we were there because I was hoping to go back just to look at the architecture in more detail when there wasn't a crowd.... More
