Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Benedum Center is a nicely maintained events venue with great decor. Good shows and logistics taken into consideration better than at neighboring Heinz Hall.
For example, it can be easy to get lost, and also the nearest restrooms during intermission get very crowded. However, Benedum had solved this problem by having an attendant direct visitors to bigger (and cleaner) restrooms when lines started to form (something that Heinz Hall could also benefit from).

Although we didn't test it out, Benedum also has an app you can use to order your refreshments for intermission, and allegedly it's faster than standing in line.

One thing I wish they had was a year-round coat check, because especially in the more affordable seats, storing your outerwear is tricky and it gets crowded and hot. They do have lockers, but we didn't have any coins on us at the time of our visit, which are required to operate the lockers.

Overall we had a good time here and members of our group enjoyed the show. Everything was rolling smoothly and it was a nice experience.

We just love the Benedum Center. Not only does the CLO put on amazing performances, but the building is a museum in itself. Each time we go, we take in the architectural beauty maintained in this beautiful theater and its halls. The lighting..so many different wall sconces and chandeliers throughout. The wallpaper adds a modern vintage feel. The hand rails going down the stairs have gorgeous designs as well. We always love our seats. A good time is sure to be had by all when attending a performance!

Enjoy the beauty of this impressive theater as you get ready for your show. Even with a packed house, the theater never felt crowded.

As a 20 year member of the Trustarts of Pittsburgh I have seen many great performances in a wonderful place. . I went to see "Oklahoma " at the Benedum Center for the arts. It was not the play at all but a terrible artistic dance interpretation of the play. About half the audience walked out at intermission. Managements excuse for bringing this awful thing to Pittsburgh was customers should research the reviews first. WARNING...... The next play is "Pretty Woman" If this is another fake representation of the real play the Trust Arts will loose hundreds of season ticket holders.

Someone gave me a ticket to the Nutcracker, which is a wonderful holiday tradition. It was great to see all the little girls all dressed up to see the ballet. The theater itself is beautiful. It seems like all seats would be great. A great experience.

Loved this place! The inside is like stepping back in time where everything is luxury and no expense was spared. It seems that all of the seating would be good.

This Venue is excellent. Bathrooms are fancy, everything here is fancy. Actors and actresses in Cats perform beautifully and are talented. Seats are high luxury. It's right here in a big city. Good variety of souvenirs to pick from. But I give this place 4 stars because the souvenirs and drinks are expensive. The water and the items could be lowered to 75% off. Tickets are expensive and bathroom lines are long during the intermission, They could hire more staff. This theater is NOT for poor people.

We have been going to see Broadway shows at the Benedum Theater for many, many years, and we have NEVER left the theater disappointed with the performance and the actors - we have seen over 50 Broadway shows in New York City, and I can assure you that the performances at the Benedum are equal

Am a subscriber to the PNC Broadway series and have been for several years. I have noticed that the accoustics or it may be the lack of clear diction on the part of the actors, but it is difficult to hear the words at times. Thinking that it may be my hearing, but others around me and with me thought the same.
