“Lots of events”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I think the acoustics are wonderful, the seating is good, and the environment quite pleasant. Stop into the shop and give some money to the arts center.

“Great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

The entire building and different "theaters" is so well done, comfortable, modern and relaxing. Great gift shop and bathrooms. Lighting, sound, staging at it's best. Parking is so easy (if you don't mind security garage) with good elevator service.

“Our favorite entertainment venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We've attended at least three concerts a year since moving to Georgia in 2003. Never disappointed. Love both the classical and pops concerts. Great parking; and the light dinner before the concert is a nice touch.

“Quality entertainment complex.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Have enjoyed all of the performances at the Woodruff (both theatrical and Orchestral), however, the $5 per-ticket fee to print the tickets yourself is outrageous. Attended a performance in which the show time was subsequently changed to a half-hour earlier, and I had not been notified. Had I not contacted the box office earlier to inquire about an unrelated topic, I would not have know that the show time had been change, and would have missed 30 minutes of the show.
