“Wicked Tickets”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I tried to order tickets for Wicked at the box office. At the website, i was directed to a secondary seller. I ordered the tickets in January for the July 19th show. After many calls (i was told the tickets hadn't been released) i finally received the tickets 48 hours before the show. When i received the tickets, all four were behind a pole that divided the stage in half. The performance of Wicked was amazing but the ticket experience was the worst i ever encountered.

“Gorgeous and Electrifying”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

My son plays with a junior jazz band. They practiced and performed at the Kimmel Center. It was always clean, bright, exciting, inviting and pleasant.

“Lots of seats have column's blocking your view”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We saw a musical in the Kimmel Center at the last minute. We purchased our tickets at the box office 3 hours before the play. This is a very old theater and has lots of column"s blocking your view, so make sure before buying your tickets this is not the case. Our seats were on the top balcony and it was very steep down the stairs to them. . We paid $65 for our tickets which were the least expense seats they had. When sitting in the balcony you also have to contend with the railing.

“Steve Martin and his Band”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We saw Steve Martin and his band. Excellent performance and the theater was beautiful. We were on the third tier behind the stage and the sound was somewhat muffled. A seat lower and in front of the speakers would have been better.
