We went to see Pink Martini on Sunday night. They were wonderful and put on a very fun and entertaining show. The theater is fairly small so the audience feels a part of the show. We are so lucky to have this kind of entertainment...More

I love coming to the Capitol Center because it is clean and very well run. The volunteers and staff love their jobs. I have gone several times to watch my son in the youth theatre operations. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Went to see Wrath of Khan with a Q&A after with Bill Shatner. The venue is good with decent leg room in seat spacing front to back. But best to not be sitting next to somebody in the 350 to 400 pound range.

We traveled from Boston to see Paula Poundstone at this venue. The venue's affordable, clean, and comfortable. It's small enough that there really is not a bad seat in the house. Would definately make the trip again.

We went to see Sleeping Beauty yesterday and the show was excellent. This is an old theater and does not have a steep incline so your view may be blocked by a tall person in front of you. For a ballet it is annoying as...More
