Great renovations and maintenance of this old theater only adds to the enjoyment of one of the many presentations that are held here annually. Simply Wonderful

“Beautiful, but cramped!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

When they refurbished this place a few years back, they certainly didn't take into account the growing size of the average American patron. The seating is VERY cramped with minimal leg room for even an average sized patron, and this close proximity makes it very warm inside the theatre, even with air conditioning. The shows are wonderful though, so I can tolerate the cramped seating if the show is worth it :)

“Always a pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

I have been to see several musicals at the Hippodrome. All of the performances have been wonderful! Parking isn't difficult even though its in the city - don't let that deter you. The staff whom work are always helpful & pleasant. Smoking area is in a convenient location, but far enough away as to not smell anything (& I am a sometimes smoker). The bottled water was reasonably priced, seats are comfortable, could have a smidge more leg room for us long-legged folks, but its much better than on an airlplane. :)

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

A beautiful building spoiled by cramped seats. Also a rip off of season ticket holders who pay a whopping premium above the regular ticket prices.
