We've been to LT for various venues. Nathalie Merchant, R5, Kian & JC, etc. The venue size is great. Almost feel like you are in a night club. The acoustics for Nathalie Merchant were great.

I was concerned because our tickets were "box" 5 seats and a lot of balcony seats are not the best. These seats were great! Sadly it was a warm day and the theater did not have the A/C on except for the lobby. Great access...More

Every seat is great. I didn't sit in the upper level, but I was 20 rows from the stage on the right hand side and could see and hear everything just perfectly!

Nice place for a concert (tonight featured the Washington Gay Men's Chorus) in a traditional setting with ornate lighting, interesting wall decorations and decent seats. Good stage set up and excellent acoustics throughout the auditorium. A bit difficult to see if you are near the...More

If you're cheap like me and spring for the balcony seats, AND you're short, you're pretty guaranteed to have blocked sight lines and hearing problems all night. I saw Bianca Del Rio at this theatre, and people sitting 5-10 rows in front of me were...More

I've seen a few shows here, but I've also seen the Gay Men's Chorus and a drag queen, Bianca Del Rio. So no matter the physical aspects of the venue (which are good), know that the staff has always been pleasant and welcoming to a...More

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.
