Attended doo wop show in April 2017. Theatre is nice. Show was okay. Some performers not so good. Lobby to crowded with tables making it hard to get in and out. Prices of tickets reasonable.

Capitol Theatre is a Historic Landmark in Wheeling. We have been attending shows there since the 80's. We have seen artist like Bob Dylan, BB King and Jerry Seinfeld to name a few. Every seat is a good one. Love seeing such great performers there.
