Went to watch "An American In Paris" then have complimentary cupcakes to celebrate Gene Kelly's birthday on August 20th (his actual birthday is the 23rd but that was on a Tuesday) and it was great. Quaint little theater, extremely nice employees and an overall fun place to go!

Definitely has an indie/underground feel, making it a pretty cool venue for those type of events. Favorite thing about the Kelly Strayhorn is the atmosphere. Acoustics are notably good also.

I watched a solo performer here and it is definitely great for intimate performances. There are no bad seats and the acoustics are phenomenal as well as the receiving area and easy parking around the venue.
