Hi there, thanks for your feedback! We experienced overwhelming demand for this free, un-ticketed event and plan to ticket these kinds of events in the future to prevent overflow and fire hazard issues. We hope to see you at the theater again soon.

We attended the Speakers event and heard Colin Powell speak. It was terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed being in this historic building.

I've been to many events at the Weinberg. It's an excellent venue for all types of staged events. The seats are quit comfortable and there are no bad sight lines.

We had great seats as we are patrons of the theatre, but having visited many times before, there is not a bad seat in the house.
