This is one of the most beautiful Theaters that I have visited. With the intricate details in all the moldings and chandeliers, it was obviously a gathering place for the upper class. We saw the King and I and the sound was fantastic through out the hall.

The wife and I went to "A Musical Christmas Carol" at the Byham yesterday. Let me make this a short review by saying this was the best theater production we have ever attended! The theater is modestly sized so that you feel a connection with the stage. Older, well maintained, and excellent in every way! A fellow behind me said... More

I'd never been to the Byham Theater before and it's a beautiful venue that's more intimate than the Benedum Center, which makes it great for a concert or theater performance. I'm glad that I'll be going back just a week after my first trip, since it's beautiful, the staff is very friendly, and the seats were relatively comfortable. I definitely... More

We have going to the Byham theater for the past 9 years to see 'A Christmas Carol'. The venue is very nice - well maintained, beautiful and clean bathrooms, comfortable seating and small enough that all the seats are nice for the performances - although we prefer the orchestra section. It's nice that they offer drinks at intermission (wine/beer) and... More

Entrance to the Byham Theatre is near the corner of 6th St. and Fort Duquesne Blvd, next to the Renaissance hotel. There's also a box office next door to pick-up your Will Call tickets, and it opens two hours before the show. The theater itself opens one-hour before the show, and seating usually opens 30 minutes prior to opening curtain.... More

The Byham is a lovely theater with colorful murals on the walls, optimal seating and great acoustics. My husband and I enjoyed the Canadian "Tenors" concert immensely last week. The view from our seats in the 1st row center balcony were wonderful, as was the sound. There is a feeling of intimacy in the size of the theater- large enough... More

This theatre was definitely very nice and clean. The seats were comfortable and from the balcony, the view of the stage was fantastic. Families with children usually sit in the bottom section whereas there were mostly adults in the balcony section. Friendly staff as well who were happy to guide you to your seat.

This was my first time at the Byham and it was absolutely beautiful. The theatre was clean and very well maintained. Gorgeous marble and tile work. The artwork on the ceiling in the theatre is in desperate need of a touch-up, but was beautiful just the same. It was also neat to see the theatre in the pictures over the... More
