Just saw Bonnie Rait perform at the Midland and her voice rang clear and true. The theatre is a classic, the way they used to build them with acoustics in mind. Even Bonnie Riat was declaring how beautiful it was for her to sing there....More

This is a very old theater and just beautiful with such an ornate interior. It is in need of renovation and update but is quite lovely. It's small enough that there are no bad seats and the sound is very, very good. My only complaint...More
