“Brady is better than BOK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've lived in Tulsa for 8 years and just attended my first concert at the Brady! I wasn't sure what to expect - I had never spoken to anyone who had gone there before. Parking around the theatre is a challenge, as it is with most of the venues in downtown Tulsa. Best advice is to get there early, head to one of the many restaurants or bars in the vicinity until show time! The best thing about the Brady was the smaller size and acoustics. I really despise the BOK Center because the acoustics suck! A concert at the Brady is much more enjoyable. My other suggestion is to avoid the seats on the main floor that are far off to the right and left of the stage. We were under the balcony on the far right of the stage and although we were fairly close, it looked like the balcony had the best views of the show. But by all means, if you see a performer that you would like to see is playing at the Brady - GO!

“A Theater???”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

This place was pretty cool in it's time. It has now outlived it's time. The only entertainers they have nowadays is those that never made it or those that don't realize their careers in show business are over.

“I love this Grand Old Lady!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

I've been to the Brady many times and it never fails to be a great show - every time! It is small, but that makes for a more intimate setting. The accoustics are surprisingly amazing. The concession stand staff are nice folk, and the merch table is conveniently located to the entrance/exit. An added bonus: the area is really starting to develop in terms of things to do and places to go if you want to grab a bite or drink before and after a show at the Brady. Love it!!

“Historic concert venue, awesome acoustics”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

The "old lady" Brady theater is a great place for a concert. The crowds are appreciative, the atmosphere is intimate, but most of all the sound is excellent! Oh, and the people watching is pretty fun, too. Very walkable area of town.

“National treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Saw Micheal Mc Donald, Boz Scaggs, and Donald Regan with my wife. We had terrible seats behind a bank of speakers, but the usher was kind enough to reseat us. Great history In th building. Some of the best musical groups over the last 50 years have played here. Good acoustics and ambience. You can see well in this 4000 seat venue at it is a fairly intimate space
