This place looks amazing. I love the design and all the neat decor. Very beautiful and very classy. Not a lot of leg room in the seats but don't worry about that when you're experiencing the greatest live theater and film showings in the city!

Right down town so take a cab or use garage parking

Pros: One of the greats!

Cons: Not cheap for tickets

I agree the Oriental is a beautiful venue but I didn't find drinks reasonable at all. My wife and I just saw Wicked last week (good show by the way) and I paid $3.00 for a 12 ounce bottle of water. That's $32 a gallon!

The seats are narrow and leg room reminds me of a coach seat on a discount airline. The production, lighting and sound system are first class and the bathrooms are clean but scarce and crowded during intermission.

Pros: Entry was quick and efficient and there is ample staff to guide you to your seat.

Cons: Tight seating and poor legroom.

I just bought tickets in person from the Ford Theater's box office. I came back to work and went to the theater's web page to send a link to people I bought tickets for. Guess What - the same tickets are 35% cheaper online with a promotion they are running. Same seat numbers, same day, same time, one row back but in the same section.

I called the office to see about refunding the tickets that I bought in person 40 minutes ago so I could buy the ones on the web for 35% less. It wasn't just that they said the tickets were non-refundable and I was stuck. That much is fair. What really got me was the way they acted like I was bothering them.

It's simply a beautiful theater -- smaller and more intimate than the near-by Chicago. The artwork and roof are spectacular. If you get a seat anywhere on the main floor, you'll have a great view of the stage. And, surprisingly, drinks and snacks are reasonably priced.
