This was our first visit at this venue. The Motown Christmas Show was fabulous! As many others have said, there is no bad seat. It was such a wonderful experience and we plan to return as often as possible. Staff was very helpful and gracious.

Brad and Jennifer Moranz put on the best Christmas variety show! Great singers and dancers. They always put on a first class broadway style, great quality show!

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. TIP: Whoever purchases the tickets need to have their I.D. with them. When people say there is not a bad seat in the house, they are telling the truth. The staff were super attentive and nice.
