We attended graduation ceremonies at the Kimmel Center, and found it to be an excellent facility for the large crowd. The auditorium was very comfortable, the acoustics wonderful, and the sightlines excellent. The lobby was well suited for the post graduation reception.

Went here for our niece's med school graduation. This place is huge!! The only downer is that there really aren't a lot of bathrooms and there are non on the main floor. There's a Starbucks (if needed) just down the street.

We sat in the next to last row of the third tier! The sound was excellent, the view was terrific, the seats were comfortable, and the price was right. The ushers were gracious and encouraged us to take a tour of the Center, too.

Recently, on May 4th, we attended the first concert of the Festival. It was great. Especially, a member of Rachmaninoff family was in attendance, sponsored part of the festival. It was a gift to all the attendees.

To be honest...with a show like WICKED, you would want a full view of the stage. Not sure what areas of the stage you won't be able to see. Go online, view seating chart to see which areas are blocked. Good luck... More
