We had a wonderful time here attending a Gordon Lightfoot concert, who is 81, This was a wonderful venue and the sound was perfect. Security was present, seating was easy and every seat was good. We also come for the symphony several times a year and I have to say it is always so wonderful. This venue is perfect and parking is always easy.

This was the first time that we had attend an event at the Saenger Theatre. We found the historic theatre to be beautiful. The employees were courteous and helpful. The performance was wonderful. We would definitely go again. The only problem we had, was that we were sitting in the upper corner of the theatre and the spot light operator kept banging the spotlight for some reason. I saw Jersey Boys on Broadway, and this performance was equally as good.

Good concert venue. Friendly security and helpful staff. Made several visits and will again! Convient smoking section. not a bad seat anywhere. If you are fat you want pit on the right- bigger seats.

The show and the theater were amazing. Problem was the staff who was horribly rude to three generations of our family. Rodger was beyond rude when the show designers told the audience to stand and we were standing at the back of the theater behind all the seats and people in the front row were also standing. He informed us if we did not go to our seats in the middle of the theater in front of lots of people and stand there we would be escorted out. I apologize for not wanting to stand, even though it was encouraged, in front of half the theater. Dirty dancing live was meant for guests to stand and dance. I’m sorry Roger disagreed.

I have been told that a number of covid cases have been linked to indoor events at the Pensacola Saenger. Neither the Saenger nor Ticketmaster would address this concern for out of state ticket buyers. If they will not Follow national health and safety guidelines regarding large indoor events, they should be willing to work with customers that no longer feel comfortable attending such events.

I was given tickets to The Waitress. The play was super good. The acoustics are great, the seats are not very elevated so a tall person in front of you makes it hard to see, it can take a while to exit after the show is over, and the drinks and candy are a bit expensive for what you get. This year the shows are a pretty good. They are not all about the same thing like last year.

we went to Saenger Theater at the last minute after purchasing tickets one hour before the show on New Year's Eve. Good seating with excellent views.. Pensacola is fortunate to have such a good symphony. beautifully restored theater, handicapped seating was created by a fixed barrier, it would have served the theater more effectively if the barrier was removable when no one using the space, so others could have better movement around the theater.

Enjoyed the concert. It was just Travis with no backup. We learned a lot about him and his life. A good 2 hr show. Only drawback was the smallness of the theatre and no break so people were constantly getting up.

The show was great. The theatre is beautiful. The staff are so helpful. We have been here several times and always have a great time. Parking is easy and we always come early and eat walking distance away. Only drawback, they can’t read your tickets from your phone. Bring your tickets printed out. You can go to Customer Service and they can look up your tickets. It will be a bit of a wait for this.

Thank you for your glowing review. We love to hear when people are pleased with our facilities and our staff. We do scan tickets on the phone. I checked with the Box Office Manager and she said the only time that we can't scan tickets is if you don't have the Ticketmaster app. Nevertheless, we are going to do some re-training to ensure everyone knows how to scan tickets from a phone.

The last few shows that I have been to have been spoiled by long lines at concession stands and a lack of adequate air conditioning. Ushers aren much help when approached about the issues. I believe I will start taking my family either to the little theater or to Mobile’s Saenger.
