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

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

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
