The venue: A striking, modern building, capped with a arc of glass, that is quite arresting. It was a beautiful place for our meeting and guests. The auditorium worked well, and we were able to cater a break in the lobby area, which felt wonderful....More

There is not a bad seat in the house - the acoustics are fantastic and seats are comfortable. Wonderful place to see Broadway quality performances. Always a pleasure to attend an event at the Kimmel.

Saw Diana Krall performance. No bad seats for any music and a lot cheaper than NYC shows! Cannot wait till Hamilton gets there in the spring.

My daughter had her graduation here and it was wonderful! The seats were assigned and most seats made for a good view, but the staff was a "little grumpy" about where you sat. This staff person told us that you could NOT SAVE seats! I...More

To be honest...with a show like WICKED, you would want a full view of the stage. Not sure what areas of the stage you won't be able to see. Go online, view seating chart to see which areas are blocked. Good luck... More
