  • Getting in is the hardest part with limited staging area to go through metal detectors/screening. Once inside the craftsman ship of this gem blew me away. Nice, intimate setting with no bad seat in...  more »
  • I have seen several concerts here and to be able to see the performers up close is something special. The acoustics are great and there are plenty of good pubs and restaurants in the area.  more »

  • It is a beautiful theatre with great employees. My only problem was with their listening device. I was there the night Hillary and Bill Clinton had an engagement. Bill's low voice with the Southern accent made it hard for me to hear and understand him clearly. The listening device that was provided did not help and I missed half of the awesome conversation that night.
  • Comfortable and spacious seats with good leg room for tall people (6'4") and okay for larger people. Sound excellent. Disabled accessible seats and restroom available. Alcoholic and soft drinks sold throughout events. Orchestra and mezzanine seating. We saw Mott the Hoople with Ian Hunter and the Wallflowers opened for them.
