Saw a terrific play there Friday night. Large jazz show coincident. The main lobby is visually spectacular - a real anchor for the arts downtown. Multiple halls for all sorts of events. Well marked - convenient to parking.

Fantastic show and venue. My wife and I came here to celebrate her birthday & we had a wonderful time. The venue is beautiful in sight & sound. The performance of Bolero was breathtaking. Great time.
