Need some culture in your life (who doesn't)? Head to the Venice theater. You will be treated to some very good theater. Whether a musical, play or children's theater, go and you won't be disappointed.

Have been to this Venice Theatre many times and would definitely recommend going. They have something for the entire family. Broadway, musical, younger, adult, main stage and smaller theatre. Something for everybody.

The acting was fair but the story itself was very depressing. The creation of the river was clever. The use of the truck was creative as well.

Went at the last minute, saw two good plays during the winter in January. We were in the small theater and I don't think there is a bad seat in the theater. We will try to see something in the larger theater next time we...More

Yes! There are spots designated for wheelchairs with companion seats next to them. There is an elevator should you want to select balcony seating.

The balcony is great for concerts and musicals. I like rows 5 thru 10 for dramas and comedies. Take a look at the 2016/17 season shows - order now for good seating. They have "season" tickets at reduced prices. Extreme... More
