I had not been in the remodeled Flynn Center. I did enjoy our afternoon watching Shen Yun. The production was great. The theatre was lovely. Our seats in the balcony were very good. We could see the whole stage. We got discounted parking at the parking garage by showing our Flynn Center tickets. It is a bargain so don't forget... More

We visited the Flynn Center for a concert and were pleasantly surprised by the venue. The venue's interior reminded us of a 1920s-30s theater with its colors, ceiling painting, and stage. The acoustics were fine; the 1st row balcony looked to have the best seats but all in all a nice place. Wine and beer was available as were some... More

Can't guarantee you will see a show and enjoy like I did, but won't be the fault of staff/vibe/building/locale....

The Flynn theatre has a wonderful line up of shows. The theatre itself is magnificent. It is centrally located so one can eat at a local restaurant before a show and easily stay at the Hilton - within walking distance. Prices of shows are far more reasonable than in New York, Montreal or Boston

We loved this old theatre. The acoustics were great - clear and spot-on. Seats were comfortable and well spaced. The charm of this place won us over as soon as we stepped in through the door. It's a must-see when you visit Burlington!

Went to the Flynn last night for the first time, had seats in the back row of the orchestra section and still felt like we were on stage. Old charm without feeling outdated. Would definitely go back!

Traveling from Philadelphia to see Brian Wilson, we didn't know what to expect at the Flynn Center. It's not much to look at from the outside, in fact it's somewhat depressing, but the inside tells another story. The Flynn has been the center of Vermont's cultural landscape for almost eighty years starting as a vaudeville house, through five decades as... More

The Flynn Theater is Vermont's own Little Broadway, with exciting stage shows from our own local theater company, to off-Broadway productions, to Cirque duSoliels and various musical artists. It's a small, intimate theater with the best performing arts VT has to offer. If you are in the area, you seriously owe it to yourself to check out their schedule on... More

The best Pink Floyd cover band I have ever seen. Close your eyes and you would truly think you're at a Pink Floyd concert. In addition, if you've seen the CD Pulse, you'd understand just how close this band is. I will see them again next year if they are back !!

World-class musical, dance, theatre, circus and family events can be found here; this beautiful venue also welcomes local community theatre twice a year, as well as our state Symphony Orchestra and Youth Orchestra--the VSO and the VYO. In addition, the intimate Flynn Space is an option for smaller shows, and the home of Vermont Stage, a local Equity Theatre troupe... More
