Don't you love these old theaters, all in gold and huge mirrors, opulent chandeliers and oriental bas-reliefs? A hundred years ago they were called "Movie Palaces". Nowadays they are all theaters, and the beautiful Oriental Theater is currently the host of the new musical Pretty...More

This is truly a gem. It is beautifully refurbished back to its original charm. Seating is comfortable and good leg room. Some seats have a slightly obstructive views, but for the most part not a bad seat in the house!

Went to see Pretty Woman the musical. Show was very good, but the theater was breathtaking. So much detail, both in the theater and in the lobby. if you get a chance to see a show in this theater, don't miss it.

We are spoiled with the Fox Theatre in St Louis, but this theatre is a nice, junior-size substitute. Very friendly staff, convenient location, and a beautiful building. We sat in Loge seats that had a fantastic view of the stage.

Thank you for your question, however I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are referencing buses, I am not aware of any specific pick up or drop off points.

Yes, but you will want to call the box office to get your tickets. Some of the balcony seats would not be very accessible for those kinds of needs.
