First time taking our twin six year olds to the ballet and we couldn’t have asked for s better experience. The Benedum is beautiful. The performance was outstanding. A great time had by all. Parking was expensive but we were in a lot directly across from the venue.

Enjoyed an evening here to see Straight No Chaser. The location was easy to find and parking very close and convenient. The building seems well maintained, clean and comfortable. Our seats were on the far left side so it was a bit hard to see some parts of the show. I would recommend any seats in the place but not on the far right or left. Otherwise it is a great place for some entertainment!

I brought my parents and son here to see School of Rock. We really enjoyed the show and the venue. It’s nice to go downtown and walk arounf seeing all the wonderful places in the area. Beautiful theatre.

Had great seats ten rows from the stage. The sound was great. Beautiful artwork and carvings. They have limited amount of booster seats for small children
I don’t think there is a bad seat in the house , especially if you are on a budget.
We have taken a tour and heard about the history and I would recommend it

Trip Advisor doesn’t have a listing for “Pittsburgh Opera” whose large productions are at the Benedum and at CAPA. “Tosca” was wonderful and you should have been there. More operas are scheduled for their 2017-2018 season and I look forward to these. We almost always attend the pre-concert talk an hour before the concert and find them informative and well worth arriving early. Consider getting a parking voucher when you buy your ticket if performance is at the Benedum.

The Benedum is a lovely theater and the new restrooms and large bar, somewhat hidden on the second level, are a terrific addition to the theater. Look up and around this theater as everything is sculpted, painted, lighted, and or gilded.

Getting out of the parking garages will take longer than you probably expect. We sometimes walk to a nearby restaurant for dinner or dessert.
