Growing up in the city, the theater was a once in a while treat. Sometimes birthdays or when our college was selling tickets for student prices. This theater is very expensive and so is their "snacks". I suggest eating before coming to the theater. This is a great theater to see Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and Mary Poppins.

Great venue for a show. Saw Mama Mia here. Would have given it a 4, but the leg room and seat width are uncomfortable.

We saw Mama Mia last night at The Hippodrome and it was a GREAT show! The cast and crew of Mama Mia did an incredible job. The actors and actresses were incredibly professional, talented and entertaining. The singing, dancing and musical production is really" broadway" quality! Our group of eight loved the show and enjoyed the little mini Abba concert... More

My daughter bought me tickets to the show as my Christmas gift. Great venue. Great seat in the balcony. We could see perfectly. Lots of ushers to assist. Easy to get around and get a drink. Usher to take pics upstairs that was fun! Nice venue.

Went to the Hippodrome to see Mamma Mia and we had such a good time! The theater itself is beautiful! Parking was close and reasonably priced. The staff in the parking garage was friendly and very helpful. The staff at the Hippodrome was even more so. The drinks though expectedly expensive were good and the popcorn tasty. The seats are...

the theatre itself is nothing too out of the ordinary though how it is connected with a few other buildings along the block make for interesting architecture. The box office had rush seats available for cash only for the show i saw. got a $80 seat for $15 5 minutes before curtain. Hallways were quite crowded as they are small... More

Saw "A Gentlemen's guide to Love and Murder" at this theatre. It is Huge and quite beautiful. There are 4 levels at this theatre with bathrooms on each level. There are elevators for those that can't walk or don't want to walk all the way up. There is also a cafe on the first level where you can eat prior... More

Saw a Gentleman's Guide on Friday. The show was great and the Hippodrome was an excellent venue. They had hearing devices for those that wear hearing aids, which really helped make the event much better. Parkview is easy, but you need to plan on 30 minutes getting out if you park onsite. Will absolutely be back in the future!

We saw the musical here. The production was excellent and on par with Broadway shows in NYC. The theatre is beautiful and the acoustics were good. We sat in the Orchestra section toward the back of the theatre and although our view was good the balcony obstructs some of your view. There is a concession stand that serves drinks (alcoholic...

It's always great to see an 'old school', well maintained venue and UM has certainly done the with the Hippodrome. Beautiful art graces the walls and ceilings of the entire theatre. Seating was clean and comfortable. The bar/refreshment area was very good, quick and reasonably priced. Entertainment provided by the Military District of Washington, US Army Field Band, Soldiers Chorus and... More
