How would you rate M Dining at the Music Hall?
This facility needs to beep dated ASAP. Only 1 elevator for use, women's restrooms sparse. Went to see Wicked at the Matinee, had seats in the 2nd to last row, at the top of the house. Seats were smaller than economy class airline seats. Bad acoustics, the sound board must've been malfunctioning. Too loud and too much bass, unable to understand the words. Will never attend a show there again.
Great service and good movie choices.
Saw wicked twice 2010 and 2013 the first time my sister and i won wicked lottery we got front row seats and second time went with my mother we won third row seats it wasn't very good view we couldn't see everything .but never the less it was great.
It's a decent place to watch musicals. The seats are comfy and recline some when sitting which is nice. But it also makes to bad when you stand up and lean back to let people pass you bc your support reclines. Also if you drop something on the ground expect it to slide to the row of chairs ahead you due to the incline of the floor on the first floor. That said, you still have pretty good sight lines all the way to the rear.
Tip for people bring kids to the shows: if it's a child friend show (i.e. Disney musicals, etc) get your seat cushion boosters early. I've seen them run out fast.
Saw the Lion King which was amazing. However the music hall allows people in late, which disrupts the show, as we had to get up a minimum of 2 times, hit in the face numerous times by the light from a flash light, and blocked as groups of people filed into their seats in front of us. This went on for at least 30 to 45 minutes. If your late you stay in the foyer and watch it on a monitor until a convenient break before your allowed in. Same goes with after intermission. Won't be coming back to the Music Hall for this policy alone.
Went to see Louis CK here and it was fantastic. Building is a bit dated bit very classy overall.
Excellent place to go for events. Went to a concert and the sound was awesome! Surprisingly, for such and old hall it seems to be in really great shape. The big thing that really caught my eye that I just had to share. Apparently they have booster cusions for the lil ones. Now that rocks! I dont have kids, but for those of you that do Im sure it will be nice to know this before attending.
I am definitely looking forward to my next visit here.
Seating is a bit cramped, we saw a comedy show here recently and were disappointed that people were let in late that were sitting at the front of the balcony section,
The theater itself is beautiful, well maintained, but you can still see the history.
Concessions were a little expensive but that's to be expected.
We saw Leon Bridges! The atmosphere of this place is pretty neat. They have a fountain out in the lobby that is pretty and nice to hang our while you wait for your show.
I love DSM! Wicked, Bullets over Broadway & much more. Older theatre, but well maintained.
Very good show. The staff was very nice.
took my nieces for their first musical. We saw little mermaid. Its a beautiful Art Deco style. We ate at the upstairs sandwich area.
I had a great experience viewing Wicked. The seats might be cramped for some people. Take advantage of the intermission and stretch.
Intimate venue with comfy seats.
Stomp was fantastic. Great seating and friendly staff. Parking was free if you were attending the show.
Saw Stomp! The only annoyance was the other patrons and the ridiculous number of people who came in late and kept blocking our view, reeked of too much cologne and/or booze. Sound quality was good even up in the balcony section.
Fantastic shows. Venue is becoming a touch dated. My only real complaint is the locations of the bathrooms. It was a nightmare trying to get through the line during intermission, men and ESPECIALLY women.
Went and saw Duran Duran. The venue is lovely. Plenty of areas to purchase drinks, but you can still have a bit of a wait. I was in orchestra B, row W. Near the middle of the floor.
One hint, there is a bar area with an actual bar that most people going to shows don't know about. The line is significantly shorter there. It's near the big crystal looking sculpture. Can't really miss it. The bar is on the other side of that. There is also a 2 drink at a time limit per person, so if you're buying more than 2 at once, bring help.
The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because I don't care for the acoustics that much, but that's just me. YMMV.
I called to ask about the camera policy since there is no info on their cheap site. No one could answer my inquiry. Literally dozens of valet, ushers, ticket takers, ushers and security watched me walk in with my camera. I was approached after I was completely inside and told they don't allow any cameras. The event I saw I've photographed previously at multipleother bigger, better venues. The slope of the theater type seating isn't right for the level of the stage in many sections. The sound was loud and distorted, the lighting blinding, the valet parking ridiculous and certainly not free.
The productions are always superb and the ushers are super helpful when you can't find your seat. The buffet is a great option if you can't grab dinner elsewhere beforehand. Just know you do pay for the convenience.
We saw Stomp. Great show in a nice venue. They allow snacks and drinks in the theater. The venue is well kept and the facilities are nice.
I love DSM, the facilities are nice, the ticket prices are reasonable, the shows are great and the food and drink prices are much cheaper than most venues in the DFW metroplex..proud to be a season pass holder !
Good seating comfortable. Music sounds good. Drinks could be cheaper. Turn the air on earlier
I went to a pakistani concert here the sound wasn't it's best and could have been better!
Very beautiful, an experience not to be missed if you ever have the opportunity to visit Dallas.
Went here to watch a magic show with friends. Loved it
Really beautiful theatre. Great sound, all good seats and plenty of parking.
Love all of the musicals here... Has never been a disappointment
Seats are too close but very clean and neat.
Joyce and I attended a performance of The Color Purple this week in this now-familiar venue. It is aging, true, but aging gracefully. The staff never fails to provide professional service and we never fail to enjoy the performances. The only handicap is the somewhat smallish stage for full on Broadway productions.
Very Professional in every respect. It moves right along, does not drag. Great story line. Must see.
Great ! The Color Purple was an inspiring musical. I can hardly wait for the next outing.
It was beautifully tailored to everyone..Both newcomers and veterans to the musical scene..Wonderful artistry
The production was lively and entertaining. The chairs are comfortable. The sound is poor. And we have row L seats. Be prepared to use infrared assist devices if you have hearing loss or you will miss a lot.
Love going here and seeing a show. It’s always great to get a seat near the front of course but there isn’t a bad seat in the place. The quality of the performances is always impressive to me and I think they do a really good job of getting great shows into the venue. Valet is a little pricey but generally worth it I think. They are very quick considering the amount of cars they have to process all at one.
Worst acoustics (sound) of any Dallas/Fort Worth theater offering Broadway shows. The better theaters are the Winspear Opera House in dowtown Dallas and both the Bass Hall theater & Casa Manana theater in Fort Worth.
Second performance I have attended. Great seats in balcony, however you can not understand the singing. Sound has been distorted both times. I ask if just me and was told no. Many around stated the same. Very disappointed.
Even the cheap seats have a pretty good view of the stage. However, I was very disappointed that DSM sells candy, bagged nuts and other similar concessions before the show and during intermission and allows the patrons to bring them into the auditorium. I couldn't believe all of the wrappers and crunching during a live performance. It was very distracting. I thought I was at a movie theater. It's bad enough we have to put up with all the noise there.
There used to be a certain standard at the theatre. It used to be set apart from the cinema.
I would expect that since the patrons are obviously not polite enough to the performers and the other patrons around them to abstain from shoving a pretzel or a nut down their throat for a 3 hour performance, you would think the venue would at least do their part to curtail the buffoonery and not outright encourage it.
I haven't been there, but my daughter informed me that cough drops are put in baskets and placed in the foyer of Carnegie Hall during certain performances. Signs accompany the baskets encouraging incoming patrons to freely take the cough drops should they feel there may be a need to cough, but it encourages them to unwrap the cough drop prior to entering the auditorium so as not to disturb others during the performance. This is as it should be.
Saw Les Miserables tonight & was absolutely blown away. Valet parking is the way to go. Don't be a cheapskate, tip the guys & they'll make your departure easy.
Super helpful, eager to assist staff.
Long bathroom lines, so handle business accordingly, don't be a schmuck & expect it to be like home.
Can't wait to see Phantom!!
Has possibly the best season of shows. We saw Les Mis and the production value and quality was amazing for a travelling performance. However, between Dallas Music Hall and Bass Hall in Fort Worth, I would rather be at Bass any day of the week. It wasn't bad by any means but lacks the ambience of the Bass. Acoustics weren't bad. Seats comfy. Facilities were clean. The intermission was quite short however (15min). Staff were fine, nothing to write home about. Still was an amazing perfomance and so glad I got to see one of my favorite musicals of all time.
Always great performances but get binoculars if you want to see the performers' faces from the back. The auditorium is in between cool and chilly. Only downside is if you are next to the sides the stair lights are pretty bright and distracting.
This is a very nice theatre, it was easy to find and easy to find parking. The parking lots can be far from the theatre itself, but they run shuttles and golf carts so you don't have to walk the distance. There is also valet service. The theatre is big and has many seats, the balcony section is very large and you still have a good view of the show if you're up there. The choices of shows is also good with a mix of new and classic musicals.
We saw Les Miserables here. The show was amazing. The tickets are a little pricey especially if you want to get a good seat to see everything in detail. Beware in the back as it's hard to see and feels like "you're standing in your grave. (See what I did there?) But the production of the play we saw was so dang good so I'm basing my rating off that. The props, lighting, stage design etc was superb. And that's saying something because I'm not even into the Arts and I could appreciate that.
Recently, attended Lion King. I hear the show was good, but didn't get to see much. Seats were bad, The padded armrest was missing from the seat, so my wife tore her dress. Not enough restrooms. We left at intermission. I've heard it's a good show. I'd pick a different venue.
Went to see the Lion King tonight and it was absolutely spectacular!!!!! It was so colorful and the imagery was amazing!!!! The experience from parking, crossing the street, showing our tickets and finding our seat was so we'll thought out!!! And not that it is needed but there were multiple bars where you could purchase drinks and snacks before the show and during intermission! This was a great experience and I can't wait to return to see another show!!!
Thank you Music Hall at FairPark for making trips to the theatre memorable for my mother and I. I have seen 5 or 6 musicals here recently and I'm always amazed with both production and accommodation. The seats are comfortable (not to mention there isn't a bad one here), the restrooms are clean and plentiful and the Ushers... I have a special place in my heart for the Ushers here, they are all informative, helpful, full of happiness and patient with all patrons who attend their shows. I look forward to seeing many more memorable musicals here :)
Great venue. Plenty of parking. Got in and out with relative ease. The production of The Lion King was excellent. We'd definitely go back to another show. The only drawback was the seats are a bit tight for a big guy (or gal, I suppose).
The show itself was great. Purchased Oasis passes but venue was not what we expected. Room was small, very small bar, snacks were only cheese cubes and some crackers. There were supposed to be separate bathrooms for Oasis event attendees, before and during intermission. Best to just purchase yellow parking pass or Valet.
Saw the Lion King musical here. I sat in the lower level I think it was section BB. It was a great location, not too far but not too close to the stage. Parking was free and there was a free shuttle that took us right up to the door. The staff was also friendly and efficient!
We saw Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom of the Opera, and it was fantastic! You don't have to see the first one to understand it. The sets were inventive, the singing soared, and the orchestra was fantastic! I've never had a bad experience at the Music Hall, but last night was special. A grand night and one I'll always remember!
Saw Lion King - elegant place, courteous very friendly people, easy to find and get around. Pales in comparison to New York stages especially stampede scene, but actors were professional and beautiful. Actors acting, dancing, and singing even better than New Yorkers though I think most if not all came from New York.
💝 I loved and enjoyed it! Went to see The Lion King. It was a wonderful experience for me and my kids. Went with my sister and Mom as well, we all enjoyed. Parking was free. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
My visit here was amazing. All the staff are so kind and friendly to everyone that enters the building and always help myself and others when we can’t find something. The building itself is really nice on the inside, and the bathrooms are pretty clean. The show we saw was amazing too, the auditorium was huge and could fit so many people. Overall, Dallas Summer Musicals is a fun experience.
The two ladies I went with have season tickets to the shows that come in. Our experience was gratifying. The staff is accommodating and very helpful. The Summer Musicals are fun.
Fabulous Broadway Musicals in a nice theater and friendly staff. I also appreciate the clean bathrooms that are usually packed during intermission. Most of the souvenirs sold for each musical are pretty high quality.
Wonderful experience as usual. Dated but still classy. Easy in and out valet. Comfortable seating. Very Clean and updated restrooms. Limited concession options for snacks, but the lines were fast I haven't had a bad seat yet. Great shows!
Many changes from the original but well done. It was hard to see character's faces as lighting was low, I suppose for effect. We enjoyed it.
We’ve seen many shows at DSM and have yet to be disappointed. Our seats were great, the show was great, clean bathrooms, friendly staff. Easy valet parking. Highly recommend!
First year to have season tickets. Saw Phantom of the Opera this weekend and it was superb! Highly recommend this for everyone.
Well the show was fantastic but they do such a miserable job at getting traffic out of the theater. It would be so much more efficient if they just let the traffic lights do their job....
The overall experience was great! The performers were VERY talented and getting into Fair Park itself was very well organized, despite the huge amount of traffic.
There were plenty of areas to sit and enjoy your purchased food and drinks beforehand, including a nice restaurant. The drinks were very pricey in my opinion, but at least they offered them.
The valet parking worked well except the app wasn't showing my bar code so I had to go inside to the box office and get a physical ticket stub to take back out to them. When the show was over they delivered the vehicle to us promptly. Again, an extra expense, but convenient.
Our seats were in the balcony as I couldn't afford the season floor seats. I didn't know at the time of purchase, but we do have an obstructed view. (The seats are far enough to the side that we can't see full stage left). The sound from the balcony was fine, but we couldn't make out the actors faces. I honestly couldn't tell the Phantom was disfigured when his mask was removed. That part is pretty disappointing. I really like seeing facial expressions.
We have 7 more shows in our season package so we may have to invest in some binoculars. (But honestly, who wants to watch a play through 2 inch holes?)
We have season tickets and could not be happier with our experiences there. The sound quality is awesome and so far, all the performances have been outstanding. I'm not necessarily a fan of musicals, but my wife is very much a fan. Even still, I have enjoyed the shows we've seen, which include 2 different versions of the Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, and the Phantom of the Opera sequel.
Went to see the Phantom of the Opera here. I ate at the restaurant there. It was oo good. It is a buffet so all the food on the menu was available to eat! The Opera was Magnificent!! Such a wonderful experience!
It was amazing. I saw the Christmas Story from the top seats as a chaperone. Even from far away the acting and delivery was spectacular. I was very impressed even though most of the actors were kids!!
I cannot compliment Dallas Musicals for better staff. They were so nice and helpful. Parking, ushers, internal guides...we even had one employee stop and ask if we needed a ride to our car as were walking...I think he was security or grounds. Ate at the crystal terrace and the selection was great and service impeccable. The production of Phantom was over the top.
The husband and I went here (for the first time) to watch Anastasia. It was wonderful! I highly recommend anyone to watch it. I would even watch it a second time if I could. The cast was excellent and the musical really lived up to the film. Definitely did not disappoint.
Me and my dad went to see Anastasia and it was amazing. The acting and singing was wonderful. I would highly recommend going to see one of the shows. We sat at the very top and paid $50.00 a person so if you don't mind paying definitely go.
Recently saw Book Of Mormon. It was a spectacular presentation. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. They offer a buffet before the show in the Crystal Terrace for ~25. I prefer to go to the Bistro upstairs that offers some sandwich fares ~10. This is a good venue to see many shows and musicals. It is an older venue but still provides a great presentation and amenities. Not fancy like the opera houses but still adequate for a good musical. I enjoy seeing shows here and they offer all the Dallas Summer Musicals.
PLEASE LIKE MY REVIEW IF YOU FOUND IT HELPFUL!
Great venue, great staff the night we were there. The only issue I had was attempting to use the restroom at intermission. The fact that there ended up being multiple lines from different staircases flowing into a bathroom indicates poor setup, and many of us didn't actually get to use it during intermission. So I strongly recommend using it right before the show you're seeing!
Fair Park Music Hall is too notch and compares with Broadway. The acoustics are good and they sell dinner food. Ushers are friendly and efficient.
I had music from the Phantom of the Opera stuck in my head for weeks. The production quality and scene design of Anastasia blew my mind. Can't wait to see the next show.
My date and I went to see The Lion King the musical and it was absolutely PHENOMENAL. Honestly the 5 star rating is more so for the performance not...read this and 88 more
