Need more Ushers to help people find their seats. Your Ushers were overwhelmed with all the people they were trying to help, and the system you have with the seating numbers is confusing. The sound system is wack. It was hard to hear what the Comedians were saying and hard to see them with those blinding lights. And the seats are not comfortable at all and it was to hot up stairs in the balconyLast nite 8/25/2022.

Attended the Juneteen festival was impressive. Especially the live performances and the Buffalo Soldier display. Very informative.

We have seen a few shows (Bok of Mormon, Wicked, and Hamilton) at the Saroyan Theatre. For us, the best seats in the house are front row of the balcony. We suggest you get there early to park ($10) and enjoy the atmosphere in the lobby. Drinks and snacks of all sorts are available - I've uploaded a picture of the drink specials for Hamilton, but you can order just about any type of mixed drink you could want. We have found the staff to be friendly and very helpful.Lots of good restaurants and bars in the surrounding area you can visit before or after a show.
We saw Hamilton here. They didn't do a very good job of communicating vaccine requirements so we were scrambling to get proof of vaccinations. They also told us that we needed to go to our car to get masks and it turns out there were plenty at the entrance. Then we get to concessions and the teller wasn't wearing a mask. We're pro mask and pro vaccine but this place doesn't help the cause. Also there's only one men's room in the whole theater.

I love the new Wheelchair area! Makes it so much easier to see plays with my scooter. I was able to see & hear very well. This pic was taken from my scooter.

Great acoustics. Roomy rows minimal scooting to get to your seats. Usually, there are plenty of ushers to help find your seats. Not very handicapped friendly though; if you want "good seats." Ample parking if you're willing to pay for it, not too pricey. Overall a very nice venue.

Anastasia was fabulous! The parking garage is another story. Some of us were charged $10.00, some were charged $20.00...something is very wrong here. It's independent of The Saroyan and we need to find out what the story really is.

It was a wonderful and great experience to see all this young musicians playing with such passion especially my Grandson Michael who was chosen to participate in the All.State.Honor Band " So Proud

The theater is still nice and presentable. Great for small to medium sized concerts. Has balcony level seats as well. Parking is plentiful, both single level and garage.

Great show place. Show was excellent, seating was good , easy to find. Not to crowded maybe cause we were there early.

The Broadway in Fresno has brought us to Saroyan many times, so glad this season was able to open. We've been in several seats and even the nosebleeds are great and the sound is wonderful.

This theater is always clean and concessions move quickly during intermission. The bathrooms are large and lines move fast.

It was very nice. Clean. Friendly helpful people. The show was great. Easy to find. Parking available around the corner. Had a small bar as well. Bravo
Nice theatre if you can get lower seating otherwise. You will strain your neck looking down. Clean and was well equipped to accomadate a full venue.

I had a really good time, great sound and there is food and snacks to enjoy the concert, only security can be a little bit too strict but other than that I had a great time.

Beautiful venue! The seats were comfortable. Drinks were available!Masks are required.I didn't see that anywhere on any website for the venue or the entertainment, which was Theresa Caputo! She was awesome, That was the only bummer.It felt great to be in such a awesome place with so many hopeful people!I highly recommend this awesome place

This is a great venue! The staff were pleasant, and even though there were many people bustling about, things felt orderly, and under control. There wasn't too bad of a wait for concessions, or the restrooms, either. The show, "Cats" was spectacular!

Really nice place to go and watch your favorite artist or concert.The only drawback is that there is no space for dancing, so if your artist has some catchy tunes you are out of luck, other than that we really enjoy our concert and you can see your artist from literally everywhere in the theatre.

Cats is fabulous but the garage parking is now $20.00....even for seniors😞

The show was great but they needed it to be more organized

Great hospitality and great experience. Thanks.

Awesome venue with some great events!

I had a seat at the top Row center for the Foreigner Classic Hits show. Perfect acoustics up there. There is not a bad seat in the house. Plenty of spacious restrooms and water fountains in this modern, clean, spacious venue.

Great venue. Attractive and clean.

Nice place, told me to throw away my water just to buy one inside tho...

Amazing venue for symphonies and orchestra events. The finest in the state. Best place for seating is the upstairs balcony where the acoustics are outstanding. CASMEC does an outstanding job to have this at this fabulous place.

Better access to handicap people that want to sit in the balcony. But overall hasn't changed in the last 50 years. The production we saw was really good.
05:34 07 Feb 20
Easy access with simple layout. Reasonable leg space yet taller folks block views of stage. Paid $150 for row E and would probably sit further back to gain a little more leverage. Parking is convenient with places battling at $8 or 10. Take the 8..

Sat in the front row and very good seats. They were comfortable seats for a long show, a little shy on the leg room for when people leave their seats and walk in front of you. A little hard to see the letters on the side of the chair when you are trying to find your seat in the dark but someone was there to guide us in during the show.Parking was good and not bad price, and lots of room for the venue.Overall great place would visit again

Every concert or event or comedy show here is amazing. The place is bog enough to get the shows. And small enough to really enjoy it. The Saroyan has continued to offer actual entertainment for years. Thank you.

Fantastic theatre. I saw the Fresno Junior Symphony and their performance was remarkable. The conductor was excellent and managed a huge number of kids. The sound in the theater was wonderful. They sold some snack food during intermission. I highly recommend this place for any kind of performance and there isn’t a bad seat in the house!
