    The seats are arranged well. Not really a "bad" seat, just closer to the stage.
  • Vincent L.
    Really nice facility. Great staff. Never been disappointed with the facility.

    Plus size seats! No joke. If you are tall and/or big hips ask for the plus size seats!

    "Edible Art" sells cupcakes at every regular season show. One of the best cupcakes I've ever had.

    Two words: bathroom attendants. Amazing! If only parking (namely leaving the garage) was as smooth, efficient, and enjoyable.

    Drinks were surprisingly reasonable and you can pre-order them have cocktails waiting for you at intermission!

    Epic fail for your terrible customer service in dealing with the inclement weather; proving grossly inconsistent responses to your patrons; intentionally deleting negative posts on social media. Fail.

    Love this place! I wish Greensboro would hurry up & get a place like this. We drive to Durham a lot for performances & to Charlotte too.

    Grand Tier middle, great seats, would not want to sit in a higher level, would appear to be looking down, instead of out at the performance

    I must be the only person that can't stand this venue. If you've never been anywhere else I guess this place is solid gold.

    Amazing venue!! Do NOT park in the garage behind it though- park in the street or take a walk and park farther away. The garage can't handle all the cars exiting.

    Box office here couldn't be better! Best advice: become a season ticket holder. They are fantastic about rescheduling tickets if you ever need to switch.

    Don't worry if you feel overdressed. I think it's going to take people a bit to understand what proper theatre attire is.

    Buy your tickets early... well I guess it pays to know that the artist will be performing well in advance.

    Season tickets for broadway series are worth it - even in the upper tier! Recommend going for the center, rows A-E, if you go for the top tier...
