This was a good venue for the graduation we attended. All seats were assigned, but it was somewhat difficult for even the ushers to read the numbers on them. They were comfortable and we could hear the speakers well.

This was an entire day of organ concerts and events at The Kimmel. And it was all free. Some of the programs were specifically designed for small children (2-10) and were great. We attended two of those and stayed for a short concert afterwards. The...More

Free tours of this amazing complex are available daily. Explanation of the great architecture, history, and also the opportunity to get onto the roof top deck.

The large hall is good, but acoustics are a bit muffled in the upper seats. The Perelman Theatre is a great acoustic and place to perform.

We attended graduation ceremonies at the Kimmel Center, and found it to be an excellent facility for the large crowd. The auditorium was very comfortable, the acoustics wonderful, and the sightlines excellent. The lobby was well suited for the post graduation reception.

Went here for our niece's med school graduation. This place is huge!! The only downer is that there really aren't a lot of bathrooms and there are non on the main floor. There's a Starbucks (if needed) just down the street.

Small theater with great stage view no matter where you sit. Excellent acoustics. Tickets reasonably priced. Parking and great restaurants within easy walking distance. Beautiful and safe part of the city.

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
There are easy ways to avoid the extra fees. Pick up tickets at the box office/will call. The fees for this level of performance in a venue of this stature are consistent and frequently below like venue. Also be sure if you are purchasing tickets on line that you are not at ticket seller site but the the official Kimmel Center site. Price are universally high for this level performance but the excessive add on fees can be avoided. Best regards
