  • Really enjoyed the theater. We saw a ballet of Thee Wizard of Oz, which was amazing. The gift shop was nice and of course a little pricey but that is to be expected. The layout and design is beautiful. Staff that I interacted with was very friendly and helpful with directions around the place being that it was my first time. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The architecture is just incredible. Will definitely be back.
  • First time visiting venue. Very impressed! I planned ahead and bought a parking voucher, so parking was a breeze. Easy in and out. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The inside is absolutely beautiful! The rows are divided, with a bar separating 8 seats, so you really only have 4 people in your row, so people walking over you is greatly reduced. Each seat has it's own arm rest, no fighting for an arm rest! Leg room is tight for tall people, my 6' friend was a bit cramped. I really don't think there is a bad seat in the house! Would recommend Kauffman in a heartbeat!
