The theater is small, which seems typical for Broadway, and I would say there really is not a bad seat in the house. We highly recommend seeing Mean Girls!

I have handicapping issues and people at the August Wilson are very considerate and kind. I use a walker and they got me into my seat with ease.

The experience was definitely amazing, but the seating is pretty tight. It intermission was handled well. I was surprised how many people they could efficiently get in and out of the ladies' bathroom.

Really, August Wilson? You don't have a water fountain and in order to get a drink of water you charge you patrons $5 for a bottle?! Ridiculous.
