We finally had the best opportunity to see the Steely Dan Tribute Band named Steely Dane at the Pabst Theater!... We have never been to this setting but the acoustics were outstanding. We felt like the concert was being recorded and I cannot rave about...More

Went to see "A Christam Carol". The performance and set were wonderful and the theater is beautiful. Full of history and ornate decorations. Take a step back in time and enjoy the beauty of this venue.

We loved our seats for Lewis Black. The sound was great. The theater is small enough that all seats seem like good seats. I'd go again!

Walking to your seat, the decline was too steep...the rows are horribly too tight for one to get through, and the seats to narrow. I felt like the passenger in the middle seat of an airplane.

Did not attend a performance, but this is a "must see" if you're into history or architecture. Plenty of opportunities for great pictures!

Come for the historic venue and the chandelier. Your seats will be small, people used to be so much more tiny! Drinks will be $7+, beer and wine also available and there is a side bar too, so don't wait in line. Balcony 1 was...More
