We have seen many shows here and even performed in a few. The main stage has great sight lines from nearly everywhere. The seating is comfortable and the lobby space is grand. Restroom lines can be long. The staff is very friendly.

A very special new concert hall with exceptional sound. Seating all around the stage. Music sounds great regardless of seating. Seats comfortable and on a slight with alternate spacing so most people can see the stage. A lovely setting.

Their enjoyment is contagious. The newly renovated concert hall isn't quite the eye candy of the main hall but the musicians love it (great acoustics). So much fun as an audience member to not only listen to the stellar music but to see them delighting...More

I have gone to the Ordway Center many times since I was a kid. I have loved it ever since. I have seen operas, plays, musicals, and concerts here. All of them I have felt comfortable, safe, and able to see the whole stage and...More

Love the Ordway and last night's performance of White Christmas was expcetional. This is the third different season I have watched the performance and this year's cast and scenery were the best yet. The theater is easy to navigate though the main area is narrow...More
