a lovely place, with outstanding shows, mostly Broadway, especially good with musical/dancing; talent is mostly non-local, NO amateurs. When available, get tickets in the Parquet (slightly elevated, main floor), good accoustics. Parking lot ($) across the street

Fulton Theatre is a wonderful taste of the arts. The Fulton is historic, it is beautiful, it is intimate, it is true theatre. I have taken my entire firm to the Fulton and they all love the plays and musicals that are produced. I would recommend this theatre to anyone.

Going to see a show at the Fulton brings me great joy. I am a Lancaster habitant and see a show at least once per year. Their productions are done in-house and are of broadway quality. It's a great place to introduce your children to a culture of theater.

This is a beautiful old theater with a wonderful history. We've seen at least 50 productions over the years and have never seen a show that was a disappointment! Their musicals are especially good. These shows are extremely professionally done and the performers, costumes and sets rival the Broadway shows. They also have a series of shows especially for families... More

I have had the good fortune of living near The Fulton for 35 years and have seen a number of productions over the course of this time. My most recent visit was to see the production of Footloose. What a great show! I can honestly say that there are no bad seats....although I prefer seating in the Parquet section. It... More

Truly unique live theatre stage productions. I have had the privilege of visiting this theatre since I was a boy in the 1940s. It is truly remarkable how much it looks the same (although it has been restored), and the live shows, mainly musical, are really GREAT!

The shows at the Fulton are on par with the shows in NYC. Travel to NYC every year to see shows and I always ask myself why I travel 4 hours, when they are just as good here. Also have terrific restaurants near the theater to dine at, too.

Although I've been to the theater several times and loved it, this review is primarily focused on the backstage tour. There were about 20 people on the tour, but you were able to hear the guide at all times. It was awesome to have the theater to yourself and get to see all the behind the scene areas. You got...

I've seen a ton of shows here...most notably Dreamgirls, Wizard of Oz, Addams Family, Ghost and Footloose and every single time I've been impressed! The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable about the theatre. The shows are well done. The cast and crew are true professionals. The building is BEAUTIFUL--full of history and home to a few ghosts! Go... More
