I love the Lucas Theater! I have been here to see two shows: “A Motown Christmas” (excellent, by the way) and “The Nutcracker.” A charming local spot that you have to visit.

A lovely theatre- beautifully restored. Attended a holiday concert which was terrific. It was easy to see the stage from any seat in the orchestra section. The acoustics were good. Ticket prices were moderate. Definitely a great place to see a live performance.

I love going here to see the Savannah Philharmonic/Symphony, and seeing David Sedaris read here was nice as well. Beautifully restored building (the tour is cool if you're into that angle) with plenty of entertainment options year round, close to many great restaurants on Broughton...More

We went there for a music show and were impressed. It's a great old theater that is in good shape. We were greeted by a good staff and had a great time. The theater is in an easily walkable section of the historic district.

We really enjoyed walking by the building every day as it really reminded us of the theater from the movie Back to the Future. The architectural design is beautiful and unique. We loved the old school 50's style sign wrapped around the front.

Was able to visit the theater for the Sarah Jarosz & Richard Thompson concert as part of the Savannah Music Festival. It's a charming old place, a throwback. Acoustics are ok but not great.

I meant front row balcony on my previous post. Orchestra Center or front row balcony are my choices. The venue is so small there are no far away seats like there are in an arena.

I'm sure there is. I noted it is posted on the marquee. They do give tours of the building. Times are posted in the doors.
