  • This is a great theatre to see a live performance. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Online e-tickets were easy to purchase and redeem at the show. The seats were very comfortable but you'd likely want to pick end seats if you are over 6 foot tall. There is a single occupancy men's bathroom on the first floor and larger men's bathroom on the 2nd floor. The first floor has a small gift shop and a place to get drinks and snacks. If A Christmas Story is one of your favorite holiday movies you'll want to see the live musical too. The entire cast did a wonderful job portraying the characters from the movie.

  • If you like to go to musicals and straight plays, keep the Fulton on your radar. I’ve seen two productions there now, and both time it was real quality. Interesting tip I got from a friend at this location. The back row of the upper level is free standing chairs. I’ll take a little distance from the stage to have a free-standing chair. Granted the view feels a little limited at first, but after a few minutes, you don’t even notice it anymore.

  • Four of us went to see A Christmas Story and it was fantastic. The play was great, the singing, dancing and the laughter in the play was superb. If I could tell the world to go there I surely would because if you are looking for the best this is it. The opera house is so old they have tickets on the wall bought with war bonds I think that's what it said was very hard to read. There's pictures of the I'm guessing 1900's it's just great old neat pictures and the woodwork of the place is the oldest I've ever seen. Just go you'll love it if you like good plays, singing, dancing etc. I've never had the chance to see an actual opera but if I do there's where I'd want to go. Wanted to add that they don't allow photos to be taken, otherwise I would've put a picture on. It could be due to the inconvenience to others watching the show or for privacy reasons due to the children in the play. I honestly don't know but it's worth going to.

  • Lovely, old time, opera house and stage with a seating capacity between 1100 - 1400 people. The venue is comfortable and pleasing. Views seem to be very good from any location inside. Since it is a smaller theatre, you never feel like you are far from the stage. Acoustics are pretty good. Surrounding parking can be challenging, so get to the Fulton early.

  • The best activity ever! The only place with the ambiance from the past into the present for off Broadway plays in the caliber of a enchanting show. Mesmerizing performances of the Christmas season that even my teenage grandchildren didn't complain. Bravo to everyone who is an actor/actress affiliated with the Fulton! The only contrary concern is the parking but it does provide a protective front door drop off for show.
