i went to see the play "Dirty Dancing" with my daughter as she and i have watched the movie many many times over the years... and she gave me tickets for christmas. It was great to go back to the concert hall after not being there for many years! i remember going in the 70's and seeing Harry Belefonte, and also Gordon Lightfoot there! it was great then and its still great! It is a very beautiful venue, and we were wayyyy up in the highest balcony and could still see and hear perfectly well. You can have drinks before or take them in as long as they are in plastic cups. The only big complain i and likely many other women would have is that there are nowhere near enough women's washrooms when an event is on... They need to makover some of the men's washrooms into womens i think as we were lined up so long we missed the curtain call and had to wait to get in... all because of the washroom lineup! some women (us included) went to the men's washroom... lol sorry couldn't wait any longer!
Anwyay, overall a great show and great venue. Just fix the washroom problem and all would be great!.... The sound quality is very good in there also.

Heard the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra here and the acoustics are great. The outer areas of the hall are spacious for intermissions. Bar and coffee bar available. Coat check fairly efficient. Washrooms seem undersized for the number of people the hall can hold. One of the nicest aspects are the many portals down each side of the main floor, so that every two rows have their own exit, allowing faster exit from the hall.

Wonderful venue, super comfy seats WITH room to move around as well as very good vibes. We seen Dane Cook here last week, it was awesome and the Concert Hall is way better than the MTS!!!

The show was fantastic and the venue beautiful...but one glaring problem is the way the seat rows are laid out. They are not staggered nor is each row nearly high enough behind the one in front. Spent most the show trying to see around the womans head in front of me. It literally blocked 1/3 of the stage. It was very disappointing
