Went to a concert here. This building has undergone the most beautiful restoration I have ever seen. The seats are comfortable. I would highly recommend any event at this location for comfort, beauty, and excellent concessions. They had hard cider on draft (rare).

We went here for the Price is Right a few months back. The seats were comfortable, the sound was awesome and we could see without a problem. A fun night and I would go here in a heartbeat to see another show.

My husband took me here to see Phantom of the Opera. Absolutely beautiful theater. We sat very close...one row back and two seats over from where the chandler came down. Can’t wait to go back in March for Jersey Boys.
