We saw the Nutcracker on a Saturday night in December. I expected crowds which is fine. Part of the charm of the theater is that it's kind of old (which you can see in the seats and the decor). Totally fine with me. The Washington...More

The performance was horrible. Seats were at least 50% empty. The main two dancers misstep and did not dance with the music. The main ballerina expected to be applauded three times after each segment -- and her performance consisted of basic steps. Very disappointed!

We came here to see The Nutcracker, a show we'd always wanted to see. The venue is gorgeous and the ballet company were fantastic! They had tasty holiday drinks at the bar. The theatre felt small to accommodate such a large audience, though - everything...More

We attended a concert here and were seated in the balcony area VIP seating. Outstanding experience from all aspects. The seats were plush and comfortable and the place is historic and beautiful. Very nice evening and a good place to see a show.

The show was great, but the seats are incredibly tiny. We saw Marc two months ago in Durham and had roomy seats in the Carolina Theater, but felt like squashed bugs in the Warner. I noticed on another travel site that seat size is the...More

This was my first time at the Warner Theatre, which doesn't look like that much from the street, but the interior is really quite striking. You can get food, popcorn and even alcohol to take into the theatre, which is unusual, and added to the...More

The seats are very narrow, and very tightly packed together. The seats on either side of you are very close to you, and the seat in front of you is unbearably close to you. If you are small, you might be comfortable. If... More
