We were able to see "Allegiance" with George Takei in this beautiful theatre which was also celebrating its 35th Anniversary as the largest Asian Pacific American performing arts venue. Our seats were in the mezzanine area so it was great to see the emotion clearly...More

The orchestra and stage sets were so artistic and beautiful for George Takei's show Allegiance. The Director gave a perfect intro for such a moving story of our Japanese American's incarceration during WWII. I was able to see the musical on Broadway but this was...More

This was the perfect venue to see Keiko Matsui perform acoustically. Would attend again to see any performer that I desire to see in a more intimate and up close setting. Also found good eats right across the street in the plaza before the show.
