Had a great night at the Embassy. All of the seats were great. I'm not sure there is a bad seat in the house. Beautiful place. I can only imagine how cool a wedding would be there.

There are always great things going on at the Embassy...The FW Philharmonic, plays, comedy acts, musical acts, etc. I saw Aritha Franklin, Rent, and RiverDance there in the distant past. Some years ago, the Embassy was remodeled. The decision was made to keep its historic flavor an install seats designed for last century's body types. Thus, if you are full... More

There is something for everyone's taste, whether the philharmonic, or a Broadway show, or the latest hot comedian. They all come to the Embassy.... More

My husband and I have gone to several venues at the Embassy. This is a gorgeous building well maintained and a pride of Fort Wayne, IN. The acoustics are wonderful. The balcony is great seating if you are not fortunate enough to get seats near the front on the ground floor. You won't be disappointed!

The kids and their children invited us to go with them Wednesday Night, for Summertime fun. Renee Gonzalez Trio was playing tonight. Bravas was the vendor, which we had Walking Tacos and tostadas. And yes, drinks. A little pricey on the drinks but that's ok. Good music and view on rooftop. Everyone buys a ticket, children as well. There are... More

The Embassy is a work of art in and of itself. They host wonderful artists and shows. It's a great place to see a show worth a capacity of about 2500 people, it's the perfect size. Highly recommend it. There are also some nice places to eat downtown, so you can make a night of it!

We saw part time comedian and full time Colts punter Pat McAfee at the Embassy. There is plenty of parking, great security, and terrific seats. Pat's show was incredibly funny, contained the right amount of sports so as not to lose the non-football crowd, and just overall very entertaining. The acoustics were great, seats a little close together, beverages readily... More

Going to the Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne is a show unto itself. Hopefully you will enjoy the performance, but I know that you will enjoy the old theater. I have seen many shows there that the performers came onto the stage and stood looking at the theater. They often comment on what a beautiful place it is. The city... More
