Visited for Giordano’s one night show. Show is outstanding. Venue is classic. Seating a bit narrow and stiff. Showing its age. Seating is good from many areas. Best seats are center orchestra. Beautiful theater. Pricey drinks and snacks.

I've seen many a performance at the Auditorium Theatre and am always disappointed with the condition of the place. The amount of peeling paint and the general feeling of unkemptness is cringeworthy. Just a thought, isn't peeling paint a code violation? Lack of female toilets...More

Saw the nutcracker recently and I loved the theatre--full of character, and I don't think there was a bad seat in the house--if only those seats were comfortable. I actually had a backache the next day. But, great acoustics, available elevators with an operator, and...More
