  • Best place in Madison to see live theatre and dance. Reasonably priced tickets and occasional free shows. Some shows offer student discounts. Most seats are amazing.
  • Watched the Broadway musical 'A gentleman's guide to love and murder'. Awesome experience. The live orchestra is great. UW Madison students get a good discount.
  • This is a beautiful venue. There is not a bad seat. The sound system is amazing.
  • This is an excellent venue. We have seen musicals, plays, and operas here. While this theater still strikes me as too large for the area it serves, it is really well designed and we have enjoyed every show we have seen.
  • A beautiful building which hosts international, national, and local artists, musicians, plays, musicals and more. Overture is a venue you'd typically find in a city ten times the size if Madison. It was funded by a historic gift of philanthropy, and we're fortunate to have it.

Where to stay in Madison

The university and state politics draw a constant stream of visitors to Madison, so you'll find a wide range of accommodations in the city. Numerous hotels circle the campus, and some of these overlook Lake Mendota. Moving onto the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, you'll find a handful of charming inns and bed and breakfasts, most of which offer panoramic views of the water. Areas south of Lake Monona feature national chain hotels and motels. These sit farther away from the action around campus and the State Capitol Building, but they can also offer water views and quiet settings near some of Madison's many parks.
