Fabulous acoustics for a Taylor Hicks concert! If you like soul, this is your man. Love the charm and feel for the days gone by that this theater brings. Looking forward to another concert by Taylor. Bring it!

Wonderful acoustics in this theater, not a bad sit in the house. It is very historical, and interesting story on how they remodeled and tried to keep as much of the original look as possible.

Enjoyed Russian State Ballet performance on Cinderella. Ballet was excellent, but the theater is a sight to behold.. Restoration has returned it almost to its earlier 1900s grandeur. A must-see if you are in Birmingham.
