  • You cannot go wrong attending a show at the Civic Center. Every seat is a good seat. Staff even advise people via the media on how to get tickets for the "hot" shows (put out over the media on how to ...  more »

  • Clean facilities, friendly staff, well set up and several exits help it clear out however the lack of a middle aisle was really disappointing. If you need to get out of your seat you have to crawl over so many people and other theater goers are forced to do the same. Not terrible but a little distracting and seems hazardous.
  • Relaxing evening at the Sympohony. High quality performance. Comfortable seating at the CC.
  • Paying $300 to see a show like Hamilton is like paying $25 for a loaf of bread. Unreal. I got my London tickets for 37 pounds and my flight for $199.00. Just thoughts.
  • They do not give much information on their online ticket ordering system. They tell you when the tickets go on sale but do not say that they are a queue system based on when you go online, nor do they tell you when they open up their queue. (And if they do they don't make that info easy to find or readily available). Also they state that tickets bought by secondary sellers or brokers will be refunded and voided, yet while I was still in queue to buy tickets I could log onto multiple different ticket selling sites and find available tickets there. So their screening system for that is near useless. Overall I wasn't able to get the tickets I wanted because of a lack of helpful information on their part and the inability to keep large ticket vendors from buying out blocks of tickets and selling them at inflated rates.
  • Very nice amazing sound.
