  • Really beautiful auditorium! However the staff was very rude! I attended a concert earlier this week and was sadly surprised of how the staff was treating their guests. Very poor service. Instead of calmly explaining or warning people their staff was yelling, almost pushing guests around in order to move. They even spilled someones drink while passing by. That is very disapointing. Hire and train new staff with better customer service skills!
  • Wonderful place. I've been to eight or more events here over the years/decades. Such a great beautiful place. I hope to get back this summer.
  • I attended the Joffrey Ballet's Nutcracker at the Auditorium Theatre in December, and though we had a mishap with someone sitting and refusing to leave our box seats, London (Usher), Carl (Manager) and NoĆ© (Front of House Manager) were EXCEPTIONAL in rectifying our situation, accommodating us with the best seats available, and overall providing an amazing experience. Some of the best customer service I have ever experienced!
  • absolutely gorgeous theatre! traveled over 5 hours to see a show here and it was more than worth the traveling!
  • One of the most beautiful theatre's in the world! Amazing!
