“Fine arts in my back yard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Living close to OC performing arts center, I would say that it is definitely worth a visit. I have seen many wonderful plays, concerts and ballets here. The theater accodates a large number of people, but doesn't seem massive. Be sure and check it out.

“Segerstrom is wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

I have attended many performances at Segerstrom, from Opera to the MACY awards, and have always enjoyed the venue. The sound is excellent due to the fine accoustics of the theatre. I usually have an orchestra level seat but have sat further back on occasion and I was still comfortable. There is excellent quality of sound as well as a great view from most any seat. The lobby, restrooms and other areas are clean and roomy. Parking is conveniently located close by and within short walking distance to the theatre. The location of the building is across the street from Costa Mesa Shopping Center, so there are ample restaurants nearby of every variety.

“Beautiful Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

This theater is beautiful. We had excellent seats. Only drawback is after the performance the staff funnels everyone back through the lower main lobby, and that takes a while.

“Fabulous Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Just saw "Les Miserables" there last night. Had higher seats up that I normally do (TIer II), however, I still was absolutely drawn into the story--even from afar. The acoustics were FABULOUS. No need to fight the traffic into LA. This is a wonderful place to see top notch musicals, etc.

“Firebird at Oragne County Performing Arts Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We have always enjoyed performances at the OCPAC, but this time was very special. We saw the ballet "Firebird" performed by Misty Copeland with American Ballet Theatre and actually met Misty!!
