attended a concert last week, very comfortable, clean,good sound,and good view from all seats. Only thing was we were waiting for the doors to open in the lobby, and they were still serving meals,the tables were located at the opposite side of the serving area, so the poor waitress had to negotiate through many people.Why not move the tables ?

The seating is reasonably comfortable for a couple of hours, a reasonable balance between headcount and spacing.

Went to see Cinderella, 4 adults and 4 children ranging from 17 to 10. Great production, we all enjoyed it immensely. My only negative point is the seating. There is no center aisle for most rows meaning if you are sitting in the middle, you have to get a lot of people up if you need to go to the... More

I was expecting it to be smaller, but it turned out to be a nice place. I went to see ProdiJIG on Saturday and sat at H16. The show was amazing and the environment as well.
