Attended Kathy Griffin comedy concert at the long event center The location was within walking distance to our hotel and restaurants The upholstery is dated but chairs are comfortable I doubt if there are any bad views in the theater

I would give this venue 5 stars if not for the parking headache. The auditorium is fantastic. I found the seats roomier than other places I've been. It's nice to not be locking elbows with the stranger next to you. The staff is very helpful and courteous. I saw them holding many elderly folks to help them navigate the stairs.... More

My fiancée and I had come here so we could see the stage production of Annie. Parking in the neighboring garage was easy, and a short easy walk to the venue. The Long Center staff was very friendly, and I liked the ability to pre-order a drink for the intermission. The docents were very helpful in assisting patrons locating their... More

We attended the Nutcracker Ballet in December. We had not been in so many years that I am ashamed to admit it. The Long Center is changed completely from many years ago. Starting with the ease of parking in the spacious onsite garage, and easy to get out at the conclusion of the event. The new center is easy to... More

Just saw The Texas Tenors. Seats and acoustics were amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Texas Tenors never disappoint. The great song choices just make you smile and want to hear more. Love the new music. So proud when they honor our country, the veterans and their families with God bless the USA. Hope to go back...

This is a good place for a concert, play or show, All seats are good and the acoustics are well. Every seat is a good seat. One of several places to see a well done play or show. Good venue with both valet and self parking in the building's garage. Close to downtown and if outside waiting to go in... More

I was there for an event last night. It is a great location for non-local events for I think it shows off downtown and the auditorium shores quite well. There are some egress and entry issues for very large crowds, but that could have been do to the planning of the event organizer. What I liked most is the inside/outside... More

A group of family and friends went to see the Nutcracker. The seats were great. It was so nice to have the option to valet park our car. The costumes were amazing. Looking forward to going again this year.
