I LOVE this theater. I have seen Led Zepplica, The Night Hawks and several other shows here I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. I love the oldness and the sound is great. I would highly recommend seeing a show here....More

It's nice to have a theater for live productions in the middle of a city with good restaurants. The venue itself is old, and could use a bit of updating, but it was a nice place to spend an evening at a reasonable price.

Hi there, thanks for your feedback! We experienced overwhelming demand for this free, un-ticketed event and plan to ticket these kinds of events in the future to prevent overflow and fire hazard issues. We hope to see you at the theater again soon.

I've been to many events at the Weinberg. It's an excellent venue for all types of staged events. The seats are quit comfortable and there are no bad sight lines.
