I thought this theater was so unique. I thought I had stepped back in time. The only unfortunate thing is that the seats are small and the aisles are so narrow. Otherwise, beautiful.

We have enjoyed many shows at the Byham. It is very nice on the inside with a decent amount of space from seat to seat and within the theater district, so you can enjoy the restaurants and ample parking. The staff has always been welcoming...More

Have enjoyed numerous shows at the Byham. It's smaller than Heinz Hall or the Benedum, but more cozy and personal. It's in walking distance of several parking garages, and it's a very busy area with all the restaurants nearby. The seats are comfy, and the...More

Smaller venue than the nearby Benedum that provides a good view almost everywhere. However be cautious with selecting seats in the orchestra area. For whatever reason, (I think because they added another row of seating later) the seating is not alternating in row B and...More

Yes, there are concession stands that provide beverages (soft drinks and alcoholic) as well as candy / snack foods. However, they are to be consumed outside the seating area. At least they were for the show I attended.

I, personally, enjoy dressing up a bit. However, you see a bit of everything from suit and tie to jeans and t-shirt.
