At the night of the show, the first eleven rows have negative slope that means the seats were in an upward position rather than downward. Seating in the eleventh row, we had a very difficult time watching the performance and we could not see the legs of the Russian ballerinas at all. To our surprise there were no live orchestra and the music was canned music with poor sound quality. In addition, they were a couple with their young son in front of us who occupied two seats rather than three. They did not have a seat for their son and they were constantly moving the child from one parent??s lap to the other during the entire show. In the past, I had enjoyed Dodge theartre for concerts, but for ballet was one of my worse experiences.

Several years ago we went to see the Russian Nutcracker Ballet at the Dodge. The view was great from any seat. However, they used canned music instead of a live orchestra. That sound system was very poor. We complained and they offered us free tickets to the ballet next year - but never heard from them with those tickets... Otherwise, I give this theater top rating for live concerts. Chicago was amazing and Peter, Paul and Mary rocked.

The first time I went to Dodge Theatre it was for a Mariah Carey concert in 2003. The venue was great for size, sound. We saw George Lopez there and the bartender was great because she couldn't make the drink I asked for because they were out of a liquor so she made something like it and charged me half-price.
I am looking forward to seeing Nelly Furtado on Tuesday at this great, friendly venue.

Dodge theatre is quite known for being a venue for famous concerts, plays, or any special event - and all I can say is that this theatre rocks! The place is really great and beautiful and the bathrooms are all clean. It should have been a little more bigger to accomodate more audience for bigger shows.That's where it loses to big shows. Parking space is available, though if full, there are plenty at walking distance as well.

The Dodge Theatre is a wonderful place to see musicians and plays. Seating and the sound system is great. There could be, perhaps, more room in the lobbies as they are often too crowded to move. One neat thing about the Dodge Theatre is that the sides can move out to accomadate additional seating. Also, registering for Downtown Live could get you access to presales for tickets to upcoming events.

This is a great place to go see a show or a concert. There is plenty of parking located walking distance to the Dodge Theatre. It's is smaller than some places for venues but it is also much nicer. The tickets to shows and concerts that are at Dodge Theatre seem to be a little higher too but that's probably because there is less available. There is the main floor and then just one small balcony so every seat you can see pretty well. The theater is always kept nice and clean. One time I took my son to see Sesame Street Live at Dodge theatre and the ushers were so picky about kids being in the aisles. That was kind of annoying... We had 2nd row end seats tickets and he didn't have room to stand up and see... They wouldn't let him stand on the seats or stand in the aisle. seems kind of picky to me for a children's show. Other than that they have always been great. I would definitely recommend going to venues at this theater.

PROS: Clean, Newer, nice
CONS: little more expensive than other venues
