Website states that the doors open two hours before event starts. We arrived at 5:15pm for a 7:30pm show and were not let in until 7:00pm. The weather was in the teens and as it was general admission for the entire show, no one was adequately dressed. Not cool. I will travel elsewhere for a show and avoid this venue in the future. Change your website or follow your advertised policies.

They have some really great shows here. Theatre itself needs adequate lighting, fresh paint, carpet cleaning, comfortable seats, and adequate restroom facilities.

Saw "Wicked" in Murat. We were 1/2 hr early ( it was a weekday) and there were several street parking spots available a block from Murat. However we were ill prepared with change for the parking meter, and paid cash to park in an 'event parking spot' nearby. We were in P row seats- so clear views, though the whole theater appeared compact that views should be be good from most seats. I had a friend in the balcony who said she could see the performance without it appearing too distant. The seats are compact. So think twice before getting in or out of seat if you do not have the aisle seat. Tall people will have difficulty with their knees knocking the front seat. If so, the aisle seat is the way to go. There is a long line for the restrooms during the intermission. However, there were ushers inside and outside the restrooms moving the crowd along, letting them know when the show will resume and which restrooms were free. So the line moves fast. Good work on that. Drinks were costly. Overall, liked the show, venue not so bad!

I was back at the Murat Theater for the first time in over 30 years last night for a show. The historic theater is worn but still regal. I sat in the Royalty section and the seats in my row tipped backwards when we stood up which made everyone in row D a little concerned. Maintenance might check this area out before someone is injured.
Other than that, if you want to see a show in a theater built years ago for just that purpose, you might enjoy the Murat Theater in Indianapolis.

I attended a concert at this venue recently on a Saturday evening . The sound was fantastic. The performance was amazing. I was disappointed in their ladies restroom facilities. Although it is an older building, cleanliness and supplies should not be neglected. The ladies restroom had no toilet paper or paper towels before the show began there is no excuse for being unprepared.
