Getting tickets for several performances and box office staff was superb. Actually explained what was available and when. Showed actual seats available for the performances rather than a 2-D diagram. Wonderful customer service personnel.

Blumenthal is conveniently located uptown and always has great options for shows. Visit one of the many restaurant options around uptown and make it the perfect date night

Spent the day at the Arts center and museum and art displays next door. Senior discount and parking around the corner which is validated at the front desk if you ask and you get a good discount.

The Blumenthal is one of 3 or 4 venues. This location is the most "proper", but a great venue to see a show. They specialize in Broadway shows and always deliver. The only complaint is the restroom situation. They definitely need more!

If you have signed up for the Broadway series do so now! Acoustics are great. Seating plentiful and good view from just about anywhere. ordering online is easy and works everything. Treat yourself or give as a gift to someone you love or a client.
