Hotels adjacent, South Coast Plaza is walking distance. Parking fee at venue but free parking within walking distance. Accessible seating in the orchestra at Door 1. Otherwise, many stairs required to access seats. Many touring Broadway troupes come through. Always something fun to do on their schedule.

went to a play with the grandkids. it was excellent and the seating was great as well. the choice of plays is quite broad and i don't think they will put on a bad production. the seem to schedule them for about 3-4 weeks so you should be able to get tickets and even last minute might be ok. i...

Segerstrom Center puts the OC on the map for those who want to see high quality productions close to home. No, this isn't Broadway, but seriously, the productions are fantastic and the center offers a great place for arts to thrive. I am a huge fan of the segerstrom Center and am proud of all they do to support the... More

This is an excellent venue. They have patient, cheerful, helpful staff. The parking is well organized and reasonable. (if you're really cash strapped, you can park at South Coast Plaza for free, and walk a couple of blocks). They have free outdoor, family movie nights in the summer (bring a chair and hit the food trucks or bring your own... More

This is a great tourist attraction if you are visiting Orange County. There are two venues, the concert hall and the center for performing arts. Both are first rate but my favorite is the Concert Hall. The architecture is fantastic, airy and gorgeous. Such a great place to enjoy a concert and maybe have a light dinner at their fancy... More

The Segerstrom Performing Arts Center is visually stunning inside and out, and the sound quality is excellent too! It would be nearly impossible to have a bad seat as well. In the three or four times I've attended, we had good seats every time, and none were the most expensive seats either. If you suffer from vertigo, however, you might... More

What a great place to see and hear a concert. The seats are comfortable and not cramped. The auditorium is bright and airy. Clearly a lot of money has been spent getting right.

We visited the Segerstrom Center on May 6th for a Jackson Browne performance. We were in the cheap seats on this visit (Loge), but there is not a bad seat in the house at this venue. I've been in every section over the years and the seats and sound have never disappointed. If you've never been, arrive early just to... More
