The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Bell Theater, was an excellent venue to see Hamilton. My only suggestion for improvement is the addition of bathrooms to serve the Mezzanine and Balcony levels. The staff were very nice and professional.

It was my first time at this theater and I was not disappointed. It was not too big so any seat is good. It was comfortable and the staff was very nice and helpful. Just a really great experience.
