In the last several months, I have enjoyed contemporary performances of musicals: Cinderella, Dirty Dancing, Beautiful; a concert: Abba; a comedienne: Lily Tomlin. The venue itself is beautiful with a circular mirrored staircase and multi-level asymmetrical balconies. The quality of sets and music is consistently pleasing, and in the case of Dirty Dancing, downright amazing. You get the quality of... More

For our first show at this performing arts center, we were impressed by the sound and seating. Of course there are never enough restrooms for the women in a venue like this, but the place is very nice and comfortable, and the staff/ushers were professional.

Beginning year five of being a season ticket holder and every play has been a breathtaking and exciting experience! The venue is a perfect smaller house with every seat having a perfect stage view.

For Several years now, we have gotten season tickets for the Broadway Series. We wait til we can get a custom/select your own seats. And then we get seats in the balcony, they are cheaper and we can still hear and actually see better that seats on the floor which cost at least double.

This venue is beautiful, has excellent acoustics, is comfortable and the seating in the orchestra and Orchestra terrace sections is outstanding. Not a bad seat in either area. I didn't visit the balcony so I can't comment on that. You can even take beverages to your seat! There are full bars and some outdoor bar seating on the orchestra level.... More

Segerstrom Center is a beautiful venue for shows of all category. The interior has wonderful acoustics, tastefully decorated interior, comfy seats, great sight angle of the stage and extremely professional and courteous staff. Plus if one is a senior you can obtain tickets for $20 on the day of the show!

We were fortunate to get two last minute tickets to this latest version of 'Sound of Music' and enjoyed it immensely. It's a huge place, so big that seats other than Orchestra or front of loge make for distant viewing, though acoustics are great. Plan lots of time to arrive, park and find your seats.
