Last evening, my husband and I attended a one-time event at the Playhouse, the Vienna Boys Choir. My first impression when I took my seat was that the stage was very drab. There was one piano in the center and risers on each side for...More

Terrific production and seats row L middle middle. Packed in tightly side to side but leg room adequate for 6’2” adult. Acting, singing, dancing, sound, computer graphics all excellent. Show went from 2pm until 4:30. Grandkids and adults enjoyed it very much.

We love that Wilmington has such a wonderful old theater right in the heart of downtown. The entrance has changed recently since they are refurbishing the building. The sight lines of the side seats can give you an obstructed view to the stage so I...More

Go here often - great acts - and ½ the price of Philadelphia. This time we saw the 5 Irish Tenors and the show was Superb - but every show her is great - cheap parking adjacent to the theater as well as fine dining

I just saw Riverdance at this historic theatre. The facility is nicely restored and a lovely theatre. However, it was not designed with the audience in mind. The main floor has so little slope to it that it's very hard to see over people's heads....More

Wonderful experience overall. Avoid extreme rite side or left side orchestra. Entrance and hall reception bit narrow so does get crowded. Will call window have to up front near entrance doors so can be challenging to pick up tickets.
