We had planned to go to this theater for quite some time but just never got around to doing it until recently.

We prefer going to see fabulous shows at Engeman to traveling all the way into the city for more expensive seats. The production are very good and the cast is fantastic. We love going to the matinees then wandering down Main Street for dinner.

The sight lines are good no matter where you are sitting. We were pretty much in the center and you can see the stage nicely.
