The staff were courteous and helpful. It appeared there are no bad seats in the house. Can't address parking as we used a Methodist church lot... More

Went to the Moody Blues concert earlier this week. Waited for the concert venue to open in a small park across the street from the entrance. Never been here before, not that hard to find. Beautiful place, great seats and a wonderful vibe from nice, friendly staffers. Looked to me like almost all the seats had great sight lines. Only... More
