Nice setting, great place to see people, and they even sell wine/beer

I attended the Garfunkel concert at the Pantages with my spouse. We had $85 3rd row right stage seats. The facility is vintage and historically significant but good gracious the seats are prehistoric and only comfortable for a 10 year old kid. There is absolutely no shoulder room so you sit with your arms crossed but touching those next to... More

Saw Craig Ferguson in a one man show. His warming act was crude and profane. Acting watching Craig on late night television we hoped to see the funny side live. His act was even more crude and vulgar that the guy who warmed up the audience. Most of the audience had grey or white hair like mine and most were... More

We have attended this show in Tacoma for the past three years and this will make the fourth. Only one performance during the Christmas holiday in Tacoma. This year will be held at the Rialto Theater instead of the Pantages so we are hopeful the acoustics and ambiance will prove worthy of the SMC production.

We have attended many performances at the Broadway Center and the facility works well for visual and audio performances. From an audience involved activity to listening to a comedian or poet, this venue has no bad seats.

Downtown Tacoma has been on the go for a few years now. The "keep Tacoma feared" campaign has not worked, as Seattlites and even people from Los Angeles are discovering our gems (and that you can park nearby wherever it is you want to go). Broadway Center gets some great names in a place that is pretty intimate. And, just... More

We went to a Tacoma Opera performance here and the extensively modernized theatre, the Opera company, the performance, the parking, and the staff outstanding. Tacoma Opera is ambitious, does classic opera, light opera and has access to real talent. We saw a performance of HMS Pinafore, an operetta we have heard many times and this was the nicest performance I... More

Went here to see Storm Large and it was fantastic! This is a very small venue so it's quite intimate, which is perfect for a performer like Storm. The sound was very good and viewing is excellent from anywhere in the theater. I would suggest getting the cheaper seats to the side as they are just as good as the... More

For the last two years my husband and I begin our holiday season by going to the Broadway Center for the sing-a-long and tree lighting event. With a cup of hot cider in one hand and our booklet of holiday favorites in the other, we join the overflowing crowd in the lobby and on the lawn just outside to listend... More

Wonderful! I read another review where the individual poo-poo'd the staff. It was wrong. The staff is both friendly and efficient. when you go to events and there are 60+ people in a line, the staff does not have the time to talk about things unrelated to subjects outside the event. Nothing peronal... Just good focus by the staff. Be... More
