The Academy of Music is such a beautiful building, and you're almost always guaranteed a great show there. It has beautiful ambiance and grandeur about it. We saw the Mel Brooks show there and it was great!

Saw the current stage production of the Bodyguard. Went in not expecting the very best; walked out in total awe. Fantastic performance. The entire audience was on their feet cheering. AWESOME! If you can get tickets, do it!

The theater is ornate, gilded and a great place to see and hear a show. Acoustics are great, and the place is just beautiful. Worth looking at even if you aren't going to a show.
