“What a fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

My family and I saw A Christmas Carol on the 24th. We made a whole morning of it with an awesome breakfast at Kil@wat right next door in the Intercontinental hotel. The best place to park is in the ramp under the hotel, once your in the ramp everything is inside the buildings because they are connected by the box office. As for the show, well it was great. Yes the theater shows it's age and the stairs are steeeeeep but what a cool place. Just consider that the place was built in 1895. All that sculpted architecture and just the feel of the history is enough for me, then throw in an incredible performance by some very talented people and that's the ballgame. This was our first show but not our last, we will go again.

“classic theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Beautiful old theater in Milwaukee now used for concerts and plays. Take time to just look around. A treasure in Milwaukee that has been well maintained. Seats can be a little tight - opt for aisle seating if possible.

“A Holiday Tradation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We saw the CHRISTMAS CAROL at the Pabst on Dec1. This has been a family tradtion from my husbands childhood that we continued on with our child. This year we took my mother in law back with us and it was all that she remembered! The theater is beautiful and the history of the building is remarkable. If you are ever in Milwaukee make this a MUST SEE.
