“Awesome Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This place is a gem, not only historically, but in quality programming. The beauty of this theater is that there's not a bad seat in the house. I've been to a lot of theaters all over the world, sometimes seating is questionable. Not here - every seat feels like a center orchestra seat on Broadway and the "rake" is perfect. There are great programs too. Additionally, the pricing for show tickets varies and is really reasonable for everything.

“Good Dancing, but Lack of Good Taste !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

"Thriller", by the Odyssey Dance Theatre was presented. We were prepared for a scary afternoon and the theatre was filled with lots of children. Although the dancers were wonderful, some of the material could not be considered entertainment. One number had a line of dancers, and a masked man with a gun came out on stage and began to shoot them, and continued until they were all "dead". Another number had a girl begin to sing, and again, a masked gunman shot her. It was terrible to witness and terrible to hear some of the audience laugh - although not many. In July 2012, 12 people were shot dead in a theatre in Colorado - for REAL. This can't possible be entertainment. Shame on you Egyptian Theatre. I expected better from you. WARNING: If you attend with children, call ahead to assess appropriate material.

Thank you for your heartfelt review of Thriller, by Odyssey Dance Theatre, which was presented at the Egyptian Theatre on its annual tour throughout the state of Utah.

I am sorry you felt the material offensive and not entertaining. Much of what you referred to was meant to spoof classic horror films, adding a silly edge to the original premises with highly-skilled dancing. This is the fourth year Thriller has sold out every evening show at our theatre, and it performs to sold out audiences state-wide.

We strive to provide a variety of entertainment options on our small stage, and host various acts from comedy to concerts, theatre to dance, plus YouTheatre. Hopefully next time you are in town you will find a show more appropriate to your tastes.

I assure you, as the Marketing Director, Thriller was thoroughly advertised with a parental warning that the show "may not be appropriate for children under 7. Please use parental discretion for children under 12". That said, we know the audience is full of children who return year after year.

“Great place for entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The ET is a very intimate theatre. There is not a bad seat in the house. They bring great shows and it's fun to be so close to the performers. I highly recommend it.

“Nice intimate Theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a good place to see a show. The Theater is steeped in history as I learned from the Gourmand Tour I took. And the theater is quint and intimate enough to enjoy the show. Not a bad seat in the whole theater.

Comedy show was fantastic and the venue is beautiful. Took the suggested bar crawl after the show and the found the evening to be just what the doctor ordered. Fun night out.
