The seating is designed for CHILDREN. Three days after the event my knees and back still hurt. I'm tall but slender. Couldn't really enjoy the show because of the discomfort. Won't be going back there regardless of the event. Think before you go.

We saw dancing with the stars here and it was outstanding! I'll definitely be looking for more shows & events here. Any place you sit is a stunning view.

We just saw Chris Rock and it was great. The theater is beautiful. Only complaint is that they definitely need more bars. It was impossible to get a drink. People around us were waiting in like 30-40 minutes for a drink and missing the show....More

The show was outstanding and everything we expected. The theater was beautiful and well maintained. Worth a visit just to see the theater.

We attended a comedy show at the Palace this past Saturday. We had seats on the flour about 8 rows back from the stage. The seats were a bit worn, but not totally uncomfortable. There were plenty of ushers to help find our seats at...More
