Very nice place for a good stage show. The shows change regularly and there is a good diversity of shows. Combine this with a very nice layout, comfortable seating, and reasonable prices, and you have a winner for a couples night out.

A very attractive, modern performing arts center that regularly books touring companies from San Francisco and national acts in addition to local Contra Costa productions. Comfortable seats and beautiful theatre spaces - especially the large theatre. Convenient to walk to from Bart Station.
