Great Bruce show that was very entertaining for us and those around us. Energetic band that had a good time playing for the audience!

Marc Salem was entertaining and wonderfully talented. The venue seems outdated in the Winton Plaza. The outside lights were not illuminated which made it difficult to locate within the plaza.

Went to see "Take Me Home", a musical review of the 70's and 80's at the Downstairs Cabaret on Windsor Street in Rochester NY. Always enjoy the atmosphere of the old style cabaret, nothing fancy but nostalgic and comfortable. Easy parking just around the corner....More

I love this theater. It is cozy, comfortable and eclectic. I love the variety of plays. My favorite will always be "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change". Great fun on a sometimes not so fun topic....relationships.

I saw the Johnny Cash show here. It was super cool. Mostly a "concert" with performances of his songs, but lots of little stories and information in between. I would definitely go back.
