Had a great little time at the JGTPA. I took my wife to a show and had a great time. I will say you need to watch out for the legs of the chairs as my wife to a spill tripping on the legs that stick out in the aisle further than you would expect. Luckily she was not pregnant... More

Great location. Nice venue. A standard with locals, and hopefully you are lucky enough as a tourist to visit it. They have great shows, from varying styles.

The Jackie Gleason theater (The Filmore) is a great venue and we go there regularly. Saturday night, I was lucky enough to see Sting! The theater is older, with not enough bathrooms for women (very very long lines) but the acoustics are amazing. Also great is the wide space between rows with comfortable seats. We always like to arrive early... More

Parking across the street at garage, I think they also offer valet parking but it gets full fast. Small venue so there are no bad seats. Is usually a younger crowd with lesser known... More

Whether it be comedy shows, musical performances, or school functions, this place is 100% recommended to you and your guests. Accomodates a very huge number of occupants, valet is convenient, and jts close to Lincoln Road for you to take a walk through after your event/show.
