Great concerts and a comfortable venue. Classical music and jazz is fine. But when anything with a popular following is there the audience is filled with morons holding their lit uo cell phones over their heads distracting and annoying everyone else in the audience. It's nonstop and always occurs. I've discussed this with the people in charge and they refuse... More

I think this is a wonderful place to see any kind of show. The one piece of advice I'd give is, if you are going to see someone who will walk among the audience, do NOT buy the expensive tickets down front. Its a waste of money.

Comfort of the theatre is above average. Sound is above average. Prices are average for this size venue but with such great sound and comfort, worth the price of admission. The theatre itself is in tip top shape after being renovated about 15 years ago. 1300 seats. Off theater parking is available at minimal charges ($5 directly adjacent to the... More

Saw Jerry Sienfield there a few years ago. Was surprised he was there but we were fortunate enough to get tix. He was great and the venue was great as well. Not a bad seat in the house.

This performing arts center beats going to New York City. I have enjoyed Tony Bennett in concert and this past Thursday the young jazz genius Joey Alexander. There is plenty of cheap parking around the theater, $10 dollars. Wow! And the restaurants are plentiful. There are several next door. I really mean next door. This downtown area is alive and...

Went with my girlfriends to see Mamma Mia! Had great seats. I don't think there is any 'bad' seats in this place. Drinks available were really good, and decently priced. They do offer candy as snacks and sell merchandise. Merchandise is a little over priced, but what isn't at any theater. The theater itself is very clean, and very friendly... More

Went here to an event that was overrated but sold out. Very clean and well managed. Parking is scattered around one or more blocks away. Many shops and eateries within the walk.

In the past you were not allowed to bring your drinks to your seat for the show which was inconvenient. Now they have started providing adult sippy cups and you can take your drink to your seat from the bar. This little detail improves the whole experience at the venue. It is comfortable, clean and a great place to see... More

I love that this theater has live performances with fairly well known talent, is pretty easy to get to and so close to home. I know Broadway is a whole other level (or two) higher, but this is a great choice for families and older folks. I brought my parents here to see The Nutcracker Ballet a couple years ago.... More
