My sister and I took my grandma for her birthday and she enjoyed it. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and made it a fun experience. The theatre itself is gorgeous and you're allowed and encouraged to take pictures :)

Our docent was very knowledgeable. We were unable to do the stage and backstage tour bcz a show was being set up for Adam Sandler....bummer!
