“Breathtaking”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We went to go see Wicked. Great performance! Venue is breathtaking and worth strolling around for a bit, so get there early. The seats were a little tight. So be sure to put your coat in the coat check that is available. We will be back so to see another performance. Also to get to the front entrance there is a little bit of walking so wear a pair of comfy shoes, as Shea's did not have its own parking lot.
