Really lovely theatre. Saw Brigadoon this past Saturday. A friend and I came early, parked nearby, and had lunch. Plenty of time for the 2 pm show. Historic theatre which has been beautifully restored. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

My plan is to one day wear a tux to see a play in this beautiful theater. I want to pretend to be old Hollywood because this place is spectacular. We love going here. Add this to your bucket list!!

The Benedum is one of the most beautiful venues in Pittsburgh and an excellent site for concerts as well as shows. We had a great time.

I attended a performance of the Elixir of Love at this wonderful theatre. It is an old 20's era movie palace. It is very ornate and lovingly restored. We had great seats. I would see another opera hear the next time I am in Pittsburgh.

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.

There is no dress code. People tend to dress nicer in the evening. Matinees are more casual. I suspect any kids performance would also be more casual. Thank you for exposing your kids to the arts.
