The venue was intimate and the sound quality was great. Joe Jackson performed for more than two hours mixing old hits with his new album. Not a bad seat in the Lincoln Theater. We will definitely be back!!

Saw the Five For Fighting string quartet show here- very nice, intimate venue. Well kept and clean restrooms. The seats just need cupholders- seriously! Oh, and try the Lincoln Logs- yes, they are $5, but they are worth it.

Our first visit to the Lincoln Theatre was for the George Ezra concert. It was a great venue for a small concert. It was open seating, so we went early. Doors were supposed to open and 6:30, but didn't open until about 6:45. It was...More

Your GA seating policy is terrible. Your ticket policy of needing an ID to match the ticket in order to enter is incredibly inconvenient. Evolve with the times, change your policies to be more helpful to your customer.

If you google "lincoln theater dc stage view" and click on "images" you will get an idea of he view. You don't want to be in rows A-D because the stages sit up higher; L probably has an almost horizontal view of the stage.
