Great location whether you are seeing Broadway shows or rock concerts. The theater is beautiful and seating is plentiful. Parking around the theater is relatively easy and travel in and out has always been without issue. Great restaurants in the vicinity, as well.

This was a fun outing in a very nice venue. The show was a walk down memory lane of sorts , featuring the rock music of the 80’s. The center is a step back in time to a more classical era . Good Time

This is a beautiful space for theatrical productions. We saw Hello, Dolly here recently. Our seats were great in the first row of the Director's Circle. All of the staff was very friendly. The bathrooms had a lot of stalls-so women were not waiting forever!...More

Classic ballet—long on amazing dance, but story not that easy to follow over the course of 2 1/2 hours. Way too many parents brought young children expecting a kid-friendly recognizable version of the familiar fairy tale, but the ballet’s focus is on the dance and...More

I was appalled by the usher to tell people sitting near me to sit down in the middle of a Gary Clark Jr show the other night. The music was very dance friendly, yet nobody in the entire performance hall was dancing. At no place...More

Very friendly and professional staff. Beautiful venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Had half-price concessions for early arrivals.

This was my third time seeing the Phantom of the Opera, and second time in Pittsburgh. The production this time was amazing and the new set that they have put together really immerses you in the show, as opposed to other layouts that have been...More

Such an incredibly beautiful building. Come early for a show, as soon as the doors open, and enjoy a beverage and/or snack, while looking around at all the beautiful architecture in this building. It is well worth your time!

The Benedum Center is a beautiful example of the bygone era of movie palaces. Fortunately, it was not demolished but, instead, restored fully to magnificence partly by money from the Heinz family. We of the Pittsburgh area are blessed to have such a facility which...More

I don’t think there’s a dress code but, there’s just something about dressing up for the theater! 😊

They do not sell items like popcorn and nachos. It is a very old theater so they want to minimize selling things that could wind up making a mess. They do have a selection of candies for sale as well as fresh salted and... More
