Wonderful theater - we vowed the Cher Musical. Non of the songs resemble Cher’s Depp voice. The Gregg Allman part was the worst of it all - his voice has pathetic. Overall, way to long and way off...

Truely good seats all around even obstructive seats are pretty good. Elegant decor. Besides attending an event, you can take a tour of this theater on Historic Theater Tours. Plenty of parking garages within walking distance.

Seriously even the so called "restricted view" seats are a great deal. Sure, you may have to crane your head or watch at a weird angle, but it's still a better view than you would often get for twice that price.

See before it leaves for NYC . Costumes are incredible and cast is A+. The story of Cher’s life with a lot of focus on Beginning years . Jarrod Spector playing Sonny , sang just like him.

Comfy seats & enough ‘20s gingerbread to make anyone happy, this well-restored theatre has great sight lines & acoustics. Nice enough lower level, extra $ lounge is a bit dark & austere, but good free snacks, sandwiches & drinks.

Visited the Oriental Theater to see The Cher Show before it hits Broadway. The Oriental Theater is beautiful and not a bad seat in the house.

Thank you for your question, however I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are referencing buses, I am not aware of any specific pick up or drop off points.

Yes, but you will want to call the box office to get your tickets. Some of the balcony seats would not be very accessible for those kinds of needs.
