Great place to see any show and Waitress was a great mix of comedy and music! Benedum has lots of parking close by, plus many food offerings all within walking distance.

The show was amazing!! Our seats were fantastic. The Benedum is beautiful. My only complaints is there are not enough bathrooms and they don’t give you enough time at intermission.

This beautiful theatre in Pittsburgh’s cultural district is worth the trip even if there isn’t wonderful entertainment going on. It’s the performance home of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, among others, and as a former volunteer for the ballet I used to conduct tours of the...More
