All the varied productions I've seen have been very well done. The acting, lighting, staging are so professional. Having a real, live orchestra adds so much to shows.

We went to Wizard of Oz and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great production. The wicked witch of the West was marvelous! The Lobby is decorated for Christmas.

I have attended musical performances all over the world and all half dozen of the Broadway Series shows that I have seen are first rate. A big plus is that parking, and just as importantly, leaving after a show is quite easy.

We go a few times a year. Always a great experience. Defintly worth paying a little extra for the premium customer service.

We ordered season tickets for the first time this year. We saw Leagally Blonde and enjoyed it immensely. Our seats were a reasonable price and had a great view of the stage. The concession stand also had reasonable prices. Can’t wait for the next show
