Reviews for Stamford Center for the Arts Palace Theatre: 4
By A Yahoo Contributor, 2/15/07
I recently attended a professional ballroom exhibition at the Palace and it was wonderful. The acoustics and lighting were good, the seats were comfortable and the show was spectacular. Parking is right across the street and there are restaraunts nearby. I would go back there in a heartbeat.
We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the theater was and how good the sound and lighting were. When we called for tickets, the box office actually suggested that the less expensive tickets were just as good and they were right! I look forward to more frequent visits to the Palace now.
Five family members (3 grandparents & 2 children, boy 8 & girl 9) attended The Circus on Ice on Sat, Nov. 25 matinee. All of us were VERY disappointed. The theatre was stiffling hot and very uncomfortable. The ice was not "real ice". The skaters were not very skilled and boring. The circus acts were also lackluster except for the clown w/hat. He was excellent. I feel this whole show was inferior in quality for the amount of money we spent ($250).
I would hesitate to take the children to any future shows at the Palace because of this experience. I hope your talent scouts do a better job in the future.
Last evening we attended the opening performance of "Miss Saigon" and, at $50 a seat, were greatly annoyed to be confronted by a sound system that assaulted the ear drums and rendered lyrics unintelligible. Solos were less so, but excessively LOUD. Sweet Miss S. bellowed!
Unfortunatly, the above was also the case with a fairly recent production of "Peter Pan" where we also sat in the balcony. Is the Palace to blame? - the play companies?
Whichever, we plan not to attend any future offerings until we learn of your having corrected this big problem - which I and others reported to box office attendeees at intermission, in vain.
The houe was far from full - ergo more hard surfaces. Should this not translate into cranking down the volume?
This is written because I love the Palace and do not wish to watch it fade away.
