We saw the Irish musical group Gaelic Storm at the Englert Theatre. We knew the music was going to be great but the theatre itself was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly, from the doorman to the concession attendants. Sightlines were terrific. We sat in the top row of the balcony but could easily see everything that was happening on the... 更多
Watch out for seats 5 and 7 in the balcony. They are right behind the sound board with cramped legroom and distracting movement from the operator. Acoustics were poor too. Watched a Second City touring group, which was just ok. Stayed at the Sheraton and could walk there easily.

It puts on the usual Xmas stuff (Nutcracker)... 更多
Have been to the historical Englert many times for various types of entertainment. Love the venue! It is a beautiful building. I love that they have a nice selection of adult beverages available during intermission.
We saw Shovels and Rope, with two opening acts during the Mission Creek festival. Ticket policy of charging a fee for any type of ticket delivery, including Will Call, and not offering a print your own offering was strange. But then having the weirdly uniformed doorman, and not opening the doors till 7:20ish, when advertised the doors open at 7... 更多
