Great venue full of charm but the acoustics leave a little to be desired. Went the Cat and Nat show here--great show--but, tough to hear a lot of what they were saying. But, still this place a certain charm.

We’ve been here a few times and have always enjoyed it. It’s truly a beautiful building. I recommend getting there early, as attendees must go through metal detectors and that makes the lines move slowly. Seats can be a little difficult to find, but there...More
