Eat dinner before/after attending an event at Jones Hall. Even though they offer food, unless you arrive 60+ minutes before you will not have time to order and pleasantly have time to eat your food. Don't even think about tying to order anything but a drink during intermission, you will not have time to wait in line, order and drink a bottle of coke. Just as you take your first sip, you are chimed back in and reminded that there is no late seating.dining • Jan 11 2014 star this tip starred
Try to get the best seats you can afford for this location. Anything on the main floor seems to be good. It's just my experience with sitting in the upper level that people's heads always block the stage, especially for my 10 yr old son. I'm 5-3 and some times have a hard time looking around someone sitting in front of me.info • Jan 11 2014 star this tip starred

Loved Pilobolus! The first half was a bit slow here and there. The first act was Rushes (2007) which is a mold of modern dance, ear piercing music at times and chairs that are used is such a way to make you go "wow, that was neat". The dance company only preformed one shadow dance, The Transformation (2009) which you can see on youtube (woman/dog) so don't expect to see all of their acts, what you see is some great modern dancing. However, both my son & I agree that the best half was the second half. The dancer's preform Ese (2013) which is almost a comic tribute to Harry Houdini. Pen & Teller (Vegas Show) narrates and it a great entertainment piece. Finally there is Licks (2013) an upbeat modern dance piece using bodies & props.
Want to mention that during stage changes and what not, there are some very neat videos that play to keep you focus and glued to your seats....
A great night out!

Some parts were slow, but there was an incredible amount of creativity in a lot of the acts. There were some ups and downs and nail biters etc, all coming together to present a great show. Really enjoyed it! The shadow manipulations are awesome!
