“Beautiful theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The Avon is a beautiful theatre surrounded by great shops & restaurants for all budgets. The Festival staff is excellent.

The lobby can get cramped, if you have tickets in the Balcony I would suggest going up right away, as there is another lobby there (with a larger bar & a balcony/veranda for fresh air) and it is often very empty until just before "the house opens". Restrooms for the Orchestra seating are located in the basement, and the Restrooms for the Balcony seats are located in a muster area between the seating and a lobby. Ushers are always standing centry to direct patrons in the proper direction.

Leg room decreases the further up in the balcony you get. I am around 6 foot tall and have to sit on an aisle if my ticket is not in the 1st two rows of the Balcony (or anywhere in the Orchestra). Even then I am very uncomfortable.

“The Festival Theatre's Younger Sibling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

The theatre is functional enough, but without the airiness of the Festival Theatre.

“Superstar musical was amazing and moving......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

We went to see Jesus Christ Superstar last summer with 2 familes (parents and young adults). This was well worth it! The theatre is very lovely, smaller than others, but more intimate which is what I liked. The play was amazing, we all enjoyed this experience very much, after the play we all went ot Fellini's for drinks and finger foods. It was a great day.

“Love this theater!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

in Stratford I prefer the Festival Theater, but the Avon has a classic appeal that is also delightful. Quite honestly, however, the building is soon forgotten when the actors take the stage. Save your Broadway budget and buy tickets in Stratford!
