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

Great venue for a show of another type of event. I’ve been in a wedding here and recently attended in show by Purple Reign, while the show was only ok, it was a pleasure to be at the historic paramount. Very efficiently run restrooms too!
