BIG prices for premium Riverdance tickets in Orchestra section. Show as great, too bad the package was unappealing. Too many patrons dressed as if it was a WWE event! I mean: jeans and tee shirts..., really? Way, way too warm inside. Sound good, lighting good for the most part (although the director got behind one number and the soloist was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Neil Degrassi Tyson at the Hershey Theater! The parking was well managed and very easy coming in and going out. The process of security and​ getting checked in went smoothly. I had our tickets on my phone which was different for me (I'm use to having tickets in my hand) but again very easy. We found our... More

We traveled from New Jersey to see Brian Wilson. The theatre is beautiful. Seats are comfortable with ample leg room, and staggered so that your view is not obstructed by those in front of you. The beauty of the architecture is noticed as soon as you enter the theatre's grand lobby. The foyer's gold arched tile ceiling was patterned after... More

Mr. Hershey loved architecture from Europe, and it reflects his love for it in this building. The Theatre is a beauty in its own right, not to mention the acoustics of it's design. You will be impressed seeing a show here. They get many big names throughout the year, and the ticket costs are very reasonable.

My cousin and I saw The Sound of Music here in March. We had seats in the upper balcony and they were still about $35. That is a lot for seats where you cannot see the facial expressions on the players on the stage. Parking is convenient and they have people directing traffic before and after. The theater is not...

We saw John Prine here and it was a great venue. It looked like there was not a bad seat in the house. The seats are older so not the most comfy seats ever, but for a concert they are ok. The sound quality was great and getting in and out was not worse then the average venue today. They... More

Bought tickets in advance for me and my mom who needed handicapped/disabled seating; I explained that she has a scooter but could transfer to a seat, if necessary. Did not realize how TIGHT the seats were for her to transfer to a regular seat--tough for her to get up and down since she has both hip, knee and ankle issues.... More

A friend and I went to see Theresa Caputo - the Long Island Medium and it was a great venue for this show. Remember this is an old theatre and they do not have elevators, just stairs. The seating was fine for us but tall folks may be slightly uncomfortable.
