We've been to numerous theaters in Los Angeles and London...the Altria ranks among the best of them! This was our first time at the Altria; we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The seats are very comfortable. The restrooms are clean. The theater itself is beautifully appointed. We are certainly looking forward to seeing more shows...

I am a DC Native and I have lived in a lot of rural towns between moving to the Richmond area. I was very pleased at the choice of this theater. It is old American art history that makes me think about the yesteryears when aristocrats came out for the 'thee-a-tar'. I would go back to see a play here... More

Great place to catch a concert. First time was Dylan in '90, then saw Isbell there last month. Comfortable and the staff is friendly.

Great show and super venue. Sound and sight lines are excellent. We were in the balcony and it was just like we were on the floor.

Our first experience with the Altria was the broadway musical Newsies and frankly, I wished we'd have gone to New York to see it. Or hear it, to be more specific. I am very surprised at the number of reviews that speak to the quality of the sound/acoustics. I can only assume that those reviewers had the one or two... More

We have season tickets to the Broadway series. So, we see at least 5 shows each year. Th theater has been updated and that has made a huge difference. The architecture is amazing. We make sure to sit in the lower portion of the theater as the balconies have little leg room.

I have attended numerous concerts and plays here and it's a great venue. The balcony seats are a little tight as far as leg room, but the other seating is very comfortable.

I have been to many events at this beautiful theater, most recently, The Lion King. Recently renovated, the theater itself is a work of art. Mosaics cover the floors, walls and ceilings. This is not a large theater, so keep that in mind when choosing what shows to see. An intimate performance is perfect here. That said, they manage grand... More

From my first phone call, to get tickets for my 92 year old mother, to see Harry Connick Jr, to staff protection for the audience after the show and during the approaching toronado, the staff exhibited a courtesy rarely experienced these days. If I could give a 50% raise to everyone, from ushers to ticket sales, I would. They were... More
