“Beautiful venue to see a show”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

I've been to the Wang quite a few times over the years to. It is a beautiful place to see a show.. The Center is clean and has all kinds of performances from Broadway shows to comedians. Prices will vary greatly---depends on the performance. The location is ok but, you will need to take a taxi if you want to do dinner and a show (you can walk to a few places). There is a parking garage next door. It can get pretty crazy as there is a large nightclub across the street.

“Great sound, terrible seats.”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

I saw Paul Simon here fairly recently and I won't go back. I am bigger than average, but all but the skinniest of people on the planet won't be comfortable. I would only attend if it is essential. These seats must be from the early 1900's. Great sound and pretty lobby though. Bathrooms are nice from what I recall.
