We recently came to the Marcus Center to see Finding Neverland. We had a great time. Buying tickets through the box office was actually less expensive than using ticketmaster. Parking was a breeze.

Saw the Nutcracker Ballet at the Marcus Center. Well-run venue. I liked the layout and views from the seating area. Video screens, adjacent to stage, are also used for various performances.

Wonderful tradition to see the Nutcracker ballet performed at the Marcus Center for the holidays. Great performance and fun to see kids dressed up with their families.

Season ticket holders for the Broadway series and what a disappointment. We have loge seats and the audio was so bad you could’t understand the words. Oh well
