My friend and I saw RENT at the theater this weekend and were seated in the rear balcony, Row X, seats 107 and 109. We could not see the actors' faces!! This naturally took away from the show, and while I understand balcony seats offer...More

The State, I'm sure, had its beginning in the days of vaudeville and has been restored to its pristine beauty. Comfortable and plentiful seating and realistic pricing with loads of top shows throughout the year. In the last year, we've seen Celtic Woman and the...More
