Alhambra Dinner Theatre
First-rate musical dramas come to life in this popular dinner theater. Sound of Music, Guys and Dolls, and South Pacific are just a small few of the Broadway productions performed by its talented cast. Seating, on four levels, circles the stage assuring every table of an unimpeded view. The menu coincides with the show, so you're bound to try new cuisine every time you visit.
Nice quaint theatre and wonderful actors! Price is reasonable for a show and dinner, great place to take the kids or grandkids for an evening out this summer. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy.
My friend and I could not wait to see "Dream Girls" We waited in line for about an hour. It was so hot. If there was air conditioning then it was broken. After being shown to our seats which was very crowded, I kept hitting the person in back of us with my chair trying to find a comfortable position. The tables and chairs are very small. The food is another subject. It was not good. There was no chef to carve a roast, there was noone to fix your drinks.
The theatre has a lot of possibilies. It needs to be revamped and enlarged. But as it is now they try to fit as many people as they can to make more money I guess, like fitting 100 people in a volkswagon.
Beauty and the Beast was Wonderful! How they can stage a Broadway musical of that quality in that limited space is a miracle. Broadway talent at its finest. The theatre is small, crowded, and the food is limited to a buffet meal - who cares!!! If diner was that important, I'd attend for the show only. But, for dinner and Broadway show at the prices they ask -- Who's kidding who? A deal of a lifetime. They even have free parking!
We went to see Beauty and the Beast and the cast was great, the acting was great.... really good show which i'd love to have seen in a real theater....
Seating was cramped.... you were really packed in there... i'm suprised it doesn't violate fire code and we were continually banging elbows with everyone. We sat at our table for over an hour before even being "invited" to go get our food, which gave us barely enough time to eat before "last call" on the jello and instant cake mix dessert. The food was Golden Corral qualty or worse. This place was an oven... everyone at our table was sweating. And to top it off, we got a bill during intermission charging for each and every DIET COKE we ordered... thats right big $$ and soda is not included... not even free refills....
Like I said, the only real saving grace is that the play was great. Look up the producer and cast and follow them elsewhere, though. This place is the dumps.
We recently went to see Beauty and the Beast at the theatre. You are told to be there 2 hours prior to show time for the meal. So, you are already very tired of sitting before the show even begins. Tables are small, cramped, and seats are regular dinner chairs. The show itself was enjoyable, but the food was horrific. I could not think of a time that I have ever been served a worse meal. My daughter said it was like school lunch and I laughed, as I remembered school lunch being better. Meal consisted of: overcooked canned corn, overcooked canned green beans, stale cold roll, instant potatoes (unseasoned), rice, spaghetti noodles and sauce with meatballs, baked dark meat chicken and sliced ham. The only two items relatively edible were the ham and chicken. Also there was seafood something but I wouldn't dare try it after seeing the state of the "un"seafood. Dessert was cookies, brownies the size of a 1" fudge square, jello and whipped pudding. I was not expecting a gourmet meal by any means, but I did expect something at least as good as Golden Corral for $45. Save yourself some time and money and go for the show only and skip the dinner.
The Alhambra has been around forever and tries to live up to it's past, though Tod Booth, the owner, seems to be trying hard to present live theater under strained circumstances. The place could do with a good coat of interior paint, and old nails and screws sticking out of walls where patrons stand in line, should be removed before someone pierces a head or shoulder.
The food was good enough, though the chef shaved the roast beef so thin that you could see through it. When asked for an additional slice, he quickly said "sure", then did a sort of samurai waving before slicing an even thinner (if possible) and smaller piece.
The show "Cinderella" was fun, and the singers nice to listen to, although some of them lacked the talent of past performers. The Alhambra has seemed to settle in with the same performers for nearly every show this past year. Tod Booth should pay attention to the mumblings going on among his season ticket holders.
