First time visiting Golden Gate Theatre to see Anastasia. Beautiful theatre, very clean. Comfortable chairs and great view and sound quality. Lobby seems like it could be a little bit of a tight fit but ushers got us in, very organized and timely. One thing I did not like however, was feeling rushed getting our drinks. Bartender could have waited just a few minutes longer. Overall, enjoyable night and experience
The theater is gorgeous! I sat in a partial view orchestra area, so I was not surprised I couldn't see all of the play! However, overall I really enjoyed our seats and the theater in general. They had water bottle refilling stations which was useful!
