Saw Mariah Carey here in December. The theatre itself is beautiful; but also cramped and it was hot. The acoustics are not great. Luckily the couple in front of me left and then I had a great view of the stage.

Good seating, nice decor. Sound quality was excellent. The show was Straight, No Chaser, a Cappella group. This is one group that I would see again. Very entertaining.

This is an architectural wonder. It's what you might see in Europe-not the US. The seats were comfortable and entry and exit was smooth. Mariah was over an hour late and the theater warned us to be there at least 30 minutes early for security....More

This is a pretty great theatre. The setting feels like you in a theatre in Athens or Rome based on the decor. The seats are large and comfortable with ample leg room. We saw Mariah Carey perform here and loved it. The Beacon Theatre is...More
