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.

I have to say for starters this is a "Beautiful Performing Arts Center." If you love live performances in a beautiful theatre setting or outdoor movies this is the place to be. We went to Movie Monday's at Segerstrom Hall is a free summer event that should not be missed. They were showing "Grease" "My personal favorite," the sound &... More

Incredibly well- done musical that was family friendly. We wanted to take our girls to see a musical in a beautiful theater with live orchestra - it was perfect. We ended up with balcony seats, which were a little too far my liking but even being way up there we could still see great. Definitely plan on coming back! Tip:... More

What a lovely Saturday afternoon I had with my daughter watching the Sound of Music. The cast, scenes, and music knocked it out of the park! I love this Performing Arts Center! It's close to home and every visit is special. Bravo
