Excellent place to see any show

All seats seem to be great with a good view. In Row O, I thought we would be far back, but I was wrong. Our seats were very good.

Heinz hall is a beautiful historic place with fantastic acoustics and a good view from any seat. Ushers are great and always willing to help with any questions or issues. Only reason I didn't rate excellent is the seats are tight for people with long legs. Just not a lot of room. Typical for older theaters, but still uncomfortable. Will... More

If you are visiting the STRIP in Pittsburgh, visit this attraction. It has a variety of displaces and other stuff. My favorite is the Pennsylvania Sports area.

The acoustics, architectural details and stage provided a great setting for the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra concert I attended. Everything was wonderful except the seating. My legs were pushed against the seat in front with no room for stretching. If you are about 6 feet tall, be prepared for cramping and stand up at every opportunity. In spite of the tight... More

Heinz Hall serves as a wonderful tribute to Senator Heinz and his family. The space is beautiful and the acoustics spot on even for a hearing challenged person as I am. We experienced a first rate performance of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra that featured soloist Francesco Piemontesi on piano. However, a glorious afternoon was marred with the difficulty one of... More

Amazing show ...gorgeous venue...however the seats very very very limited if you are over 5 ft tall ...my husbands legs were in the isle the entire time....Enjoyed the music in a classy venue - without the irritation of intoxicated people everywhere.

There's not a bad seat in the house in this gorgeously restored movie palace that is home to Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and a stopping point for various traveling shows. The Sunday brunch served by Common Plea Catering is a bargain (currently $23.45 including tax) and includes a Bloody Mary or Mimosa; you can have dinner before the concert, etc. The... More

On the coolest night and haven't beenom Heinz Hall for awhile took me by surprise. The beauty of the Hall itself took me by surprise of how the past and a future architecture design was blended. The past, i.e. balconies, staircases, the gold trim but the cafes place you in futuristic setting. Wasn't a fan of the show we went... More

I bought tickets for my mom and I to see "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" tonight. Unfortunately, I had a friend describe the production to me as extremely triggering in the amount of intense screaming and lights used. This is upsetting to me because I purchased tickets after having read the book, not expecting anything too... More
