“One of the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Living in Saint Paul for my entire life I have come to take good theatre and music for granted. All it takes is a little travel to realize how blessed we are to have a quality facility that provides these and so much more in the style that the Ordway does. I have been to symphony and a Broadway touring performance at the Ordway in the last 6 days. Ordway is perfectly located. There are a number of parking options and you can even get there on the bus! Restaurant options in all price ranges within walking distance of Ordway are AMAZING! Meander through the park on your way to the door and take in the architecture and the social space that St Paul does so well. Get there early and have a glass of wine or a fancy drink before curtain. Just spending time in their gorgeous spaces is worth the early arrival. Ticket office is amazingly helpful, patient, and friendly. Visiting or living in St Paul, Ordway is a MUST-DO!

Such a delight! Highly recommend taking in an event. The Ordway is a lovely venue. Downtown St Paul is a wonderful area to take in.

“Very Elegant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Ordway is a very nice performing arts center. The location, across from a park, is so beautiful. It's a great place for a concert and a nice place for a special outing!

“Nice venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The venue is very nice and obviously shows will change from time to time. Padded seats with adequate width and leg room.
