Family-Friendly Theatre Production
Dec 18, 2014 by: Lin R from
My second trip to this theatre for the holiday performance of The Nutcracker Ballet. Performed by local ballet students (starting around age 6) who are joined by professionals - this year from the New York Ballet. This is a sell-out event, with activities for children beforehand and small holiday crafts for sale in the lobby. The price is amazingly reasonable for this annual show, so it is very popular. Get there at least 20 minutes early as the crowd is thick. The theatre is very nicely renovated, though additional restrooms in the lobby areas would be helpful. If you think you are purchasing in the front row of the balcony, be aware that it really is just a step up from the mezzanine level, with no actual direct overlook to the stage. Still, the seats are raked well enough that impeded views are not much of a concern. Definitely worth a visit to this venue - they have interesting performances year-round.
What a great theater.

Find a reason to see a show at this incredible venue. Excellent box office response, excellent ushers and beverage servers. Please support these wonderful theaters.

We recently attended a musical performance here. The acoustics were great, comfortable seats and an excellent selections of beer made for an excellent evening. Parking is nearby and most affordable at $2 for the evening! Lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance in the historical district. Was able to meet the director of this establishment who shared the vision and the work to make this place happen. We will be back.
Lots of potential but fix the temperature

I love the variety of entertainment they present at the Weinberg and have been several times but we went to see 1964 - the Tribute last night and the heat in the balcony was oppressive. The theater itself is beautiful and well maintained, but I was so hot I was nauseated and couldn't wait to get out of there. I told one of the ushers it was too hot in the balcony and she just said, "Yup." Not exactly a premium theater experience. Maybe it's because it just started getting cold outside, I don't know, but regardless it was hot enough that my wife and I decided not to attend a show next weekend because of it.
FIX THE AIR CONDITIONING

The AC is broken and they are not fixing it. Ruins the experience. Theater has a lot of potential but they need to make the audience comfortable. Avoid until they can confirm the A/C is fixed.
