  • I came here on 1/22/19 to see The Cher Show. What a fantastic show in a very nice venue. The theater's orchestra section had a great view no matter the seat. I was in the center, row P and I could see the whole stage with no problems. The seats are just a tad tight as folks got bigger but the seats didn't. Elbow space was a luxury if your seat mate doesn't share. For this show, there were no balcony seats available, not sure if it was on purpose or it was closed. As for the show itself, they offered a prompter for the hearing impaired just to the left of the stage. . This you could read what they were saying. Very cool and it didn't distract you from the stage. The set was beautiful for this show and simple but told the story well. Go see The Cher Show for the music and the costumes. Loved it.
  • Went to go see the Cher Show the other night at this theater. First time in this theater and was impressed with the show and theater itself. Downstairs are the restrooms, bar, as well as gift shop for the show. Workers wee very helpful with guiding us to our seats. Only downside is the seats were a bit small (but that seems to be the case in all the Broadway theaters).
