I have been coming here from time to time for over 30 years, and it hasn't changed much. Parking now costs $15 so grab a street spot if you don't mind walking a block or two.

This jewel of a theatre in Milwaukee has some of the best musicals around. Today was the last performance of "Come from away" by a touring cast of great singers. The acoustics were great. We will return for another performance in the future.

Amazing sightline from the balcony box we sat in. Audio sounded good too. Parking is right across the street and cost $15 for the event. Saw Book of Mormon and it was pretty good. The theatre isn't as ornate as some of the ones I...More

We were here last night for the opening musical performance of 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' and we were not disappointed. I have never been to this venue before, but will definitely be back in the future. We snagged drinks (beer, wine, hot chocolate) from...More

We used to frequent the Marcus Center (PAC) and always looked forward to the facility and the plays or concerts. This was not an inexpensive play called "Something Rotten". It had constant music which inserted Shakespeare's short lines from his work mingled with the singing...More

We sat in the middle of row R on the main floor for a Ken-David Masur evening with Rachmaninof and Brahms. Excellent seats for half the price of what one would pay in a similar setting in Chicago. We are fortunate to have this venue...More
