Attended a musical here. The acoustics were excellent. View is good from any part of the theatre. In particular I like the attractive bar and cafe. Building is in very good shape and the seating is excellent.

I've been to this theater multiple times and never had a bad seat. The place is great for any type of show, and prices are very affordable.
