My first time. I loved dance as a child. With other subjects including school, I had music lessons, two instruments and quit. Finally, I got to see this unique experience. I have always loved the movement of dance as I do a symphony or opera or wonderful play, As I see it, it is always a dance, no matter if... More

The theater is very nice, but since it's old, the seats are very small. My husband is tall, with long legs, and he had to stand in the back for the second half of the show, because he couldn't get comfortable. We sat in the center of the balcony and had an excellent view.

Seating ,Parking, proximity to Bars and Restaurants...All of these were excellent..This being a Historical Venue makes the place a must see,it just needs freshened up. The interior is tired including the restrooms..Noticible trash under the seats. Still I would recommend going to a show here. Went to see Dancing with the Stars and it was perfect..They came to dance and... More

We went to a movie at the Murat - it was a different experience only because we were encouraged to bring our own seats or blanket to sit on the floor. Good crowd, classic movie, drinks and munchies available. We will go again.

Beautiful theater! Every seat is great. Don't have to pay for an expensive seat to enjoy the show. Plenty of parking nearby and a great selection of restaurants within walking distance

I'd like to give this a 5 star review because we really enjoyed the show however the venue could best be described as a dump. I love historic theaters and seek them out. I had not been to a show at the Murat in over a decade and was amazed out how run down the building has become. My seat... More

Great play part of the Indianapolis on Broadway series. Theater is older building- beautiful architectural design. Broadway professional singing and great sets.

We sat in orchestra level, row x. had some open seats on this row so tried to reposition but a very foul sewage stench wafted in periodically - far from subtle, and very foul. If smells bother you, you'd be very distracted by this stench. I know a likely rare complaint - foul smell causing a negative experience at an... More

This is a nice place to see a show, seems as though most seats have a decent view of the stage. We were in row kk, orchestra. This is kind of just too far back for my liking. A few of the seats near the aisle were obstructed by a giant pole. Event parking, $10. I would definitely go there... More
