Magnificent old world building. A treat to see any show here. I saw The Ferryman in mid October convenient to many restaurants for before or after the show.

Denzel and the entire cast are fantastically awesome and wonderful!!! Punctuality is key because when they say 7 pm, they mean it!! The show starts a little slow but really picks up the pace. Show is a little long but the acting keeps it moving....More

The theatre is nice, just old and needs some revamping. Seats sit very low to the ground so anyone taller may not be as comfortable. Needs another restroom. During intermission it is very crowded and hard to walk down stairs. They had one employee telling...More
