The building inside decor was quite amazing. Has a very amazing back story. We watched Freaky Friday. The performance is definitely Broadway level. In fact, the largest performing arts outside of Broadway.

We've attended many performances at the Allen Theatre over the last few years. Since I am short, I've found that sitting in the balcony provides me with the best view. I also like the view from there as you can see the entire stage easily....More

Very intimate feel. The decor made the ambience special. Was there for a jazz concert and my wife and I felt very connected to the artist.

We saw Steel Magnolias and were extremely impressed by this theatre. Beautiful entrance, nice room just outside the stage for gathering pre-show or at intermission. The theatre itself is very nice looking snd I loved the layout. Doesn't really appear to be a bad seat....More

The Allen is beautiful and not too large. This allows every seat a great view of the stage. Restrooms are not too crowded. Concessions were also plentiful with short lines. This is an enjoyable venue. I had luck in parking in a lot across from...More

Tyler Perry's play was excellent. There was a very rude woman next to us who kept talking throughout the play. The seating was originally built for short people. Get an aisle seat if you have long legs. Beautiful building. Nice staff.

If you have seen the movie and know every word, perhaps you may find it kind of boring. My partner is a fanatic of the story, but felt it was just ok. If you haven't seen it, you will enjoy it much better
