Capitol Center for the Arts is the best venue for an evening out for a play, concert or comedy show. Great Date Night venue! It's clean and prices for drinks are reasonable.

Saw Juston McKinney there. He was hilarious, but we almost had to leave. The seats are so tight that it is uncomfortable after an hour or so. Nice theater, but the lighting also almost hits the crowd, so it gets hot quickly.

Have been here before, and the place remains a good place to see a show. The staff and ushers are helpful and friendly. Not really a bad seat in the house. The grounds are always clean.
