    Don't wait for the elevator. You might as well just take the twenty flights of stairs. It is quicker that way. The production however, was amazing.

    If you can't get the orchestra, the front row mezzanine has great views! It's arguably better than many areas of the orchestra because the view is not obstructed by others.

    If at all possible, buy your tickets AT Hobby Center save yourself $15-20 on each ticket

    Nice theater but sound was a bit muddled for Wicked. Don't know if it was the center of the traveling sound system.

    Instead of buying tickets online, take the time to go to the box office in person; you'll save a bundle on service fees!
