Front row seats to Jersey Boys was such a treat for my wife and I!

PRO: Exceptional show, acting, story, music. I was concerned I was going to be blasted by speakers in the front row. Not a problem. Great acoustics and levels.

CON: None!

Looking at the theater, any seat you get will be ideal to watch any show they have!

This was our first trip to see a show at the Fulton. The theater itself is worth seeing as it reminds on of many broadway stages we have seen. We saw “Man of La Mancha” The cast and music were wonderful. Not that crazy about the play itself but certain most patrons enjoyed it. Would definitely go back.

We went last night to see “Smoky Joe’s Cafe” what a disturbing disappointment!
We left at intermission, it was a vulgar play and a total waste of money.

I just saw the Fulton Theatre's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This production was hilarious, touching and the acting was tremendous. I don't remember laughing this hard at anything in a very long time. The cast was tremendous, their voices were beautiful, and the choreography spot on. I have seen a number of productions at the Fulton, but none as funny or tender as this one. Whoever cast this show deserves kudos.

The description of the play "Spelling Bee" described it as a "heartfelt" story, etc. That description suggested to us wholesome family entertainment. For the first half of the play, this was generally the case, but then the wheels came off. The script and lyrics went suddenly into the gutter with vulgar inuendo followed by vulgar lyrics, culminating in blasphemy, which is when we took our leave. We wished we had followed others who left earlier, during the vulgar. At any rate, we won't be returning, which is sad because we loved Cinderella a couple of months earlier and have thoroughly enjoyed other productions in the past. We are certainly aware that there are those who desire this kind of entertainment, but the least you can do is give adequate, straightforward descriptions of content so patrons are not disappointed. We would have saved our money.

Our first visit to the Fulton was to see Cinderella. What a treat! Our mezzanine seats were perfect for viewing the full stage, all of the action and those GORGEOUS costumes. The talent was exceptional - the set was just beautiful. And the theatre itself, along with its recently renovated lobby are stunning as well. Lots of superlatives here -- but truly deserving. I've seen more shows on Broadway than I could ever begin to count and I must say that this show was right up there with the best of them. If I were a local I'd have season tickets!

This was our third visit to the Fulton Theatre. This time we saw Cinderella. The actors/actresses were excellent. Our seats were in the balcony, first row; very good seats. Very enjoyable evening.

No one wants to limit the Fulton to present only G-rated, Sound-of-Music, type performances. Nor do most patrons want vulgar, profane, indecent, Woke-to-the-hilt, performances. The political leanings of the Fulton leadership is far too blatant for our tastes. We're done.

During this time the businesses that treat others with respect and consideration will be rewarded. This does not apply to the Fulton. I have asked for a refund as we will not be attending the performance which will probably be cancelled. We are seniors we need a refund now to pay unexpected bills because of the recent changes in all our lives. Sorry but I can’t afford a donation at this time and a future gift certificate will not feed us now. Over the years we have supported them, they should show us some consideration too.

This was our first time here, and we just loved it. Did not know what to expect and were not disappointed. The show was fantastic. Kudos to everyone involved in all aspects of putting on the shows. Will certainly be going back again.
