Very Nice Evening

Went for a show and had a great experience. Parking was easy, restrooms were plentiful and the whole family enjoyed the show- would definitely return again.

This is a beautiful historic theater with wonderful architecture. There is not a lot of legroom, but I find the seats comfortable (although I'm only 5'1). Take the time to look around the lobby. There are many photos (from the Maryland Historical Society) of the old Baltimore theaters.

First time at this theater, although I've been to many in NYC. It truly is comparable! It's a beautiful old theater. I don't think there would be a bad seat in the house. Cabaret was a great show! We were there a little early so stopped at their cafe inside the theater for an appetizer and drink. We also parked... More

This theater is refurbished so well that it feels like you have been transported back in time. Arrive early to enjoy the architecture and old photos that are displayed. The restrooms were adequate, staff was pleasant, views of the stage were great and acoustics were good ...BUT the seats were so uncomfortable. Holding a light jacket in my lap with... More

Sat almost all the way to the back, upper level. It wasn't a problem at all. Could see and hear very well. Did not experience cramped seats as others mentioned (maybe this issue is for the lower level seats). Temperature was just fine.

Went to see the Oz show Wicked. Good singers, good show. The leg room for your legs in the seats is terrible. I'm not super sized, 198-205 , 5`9". And my knees would not fit between the rows sitting unless I turned sideways. I've been before and had seats on the front top rail and had plenty of leg room.... More

Reminded us of the Grand Opera House in Paris! The architecture was gorgeous. The seating wasn't too tight and the staff was very friendly and professional. Excellent Experience!

My family and I have been visiting the Hippodrome for years. We typically get an annual subscription, which I highly recommend. The show selection has been excellent over the years and it is a wonderful location to see musicals and plays. We have great memories of seeing Wicked and The Lion King. We will continue to have subscriptions for the... More

This space, due to the dilligence of so many, is a lovely and welcome theatrical addition to the arts landscape. We did not see a show, but received a tour there from the Producing Director Ron Legler and were amazed at the restoration, the facilities, and the plans for the future. Bravo. I live in Florida, and there is no... More

We have season tickets at the Hippodrome since it reopened 10 years ago. We have seen many great shows. Often the ones we have never heard we enjoy the most. That is the case for Mowtown the Musical. We were somewhat familiar with the record label Motown an the great music that came from it, but we hadn't heard anything... More
