Beautiful theatre and great acoustics. Love, loved, loved the show. While the seats are comfortable, the leg room for taller patrons could use improvement. I would recommend this venue and look forward to visiting again.

All the history that went into this place is diminished when you sit down in their uncomfortable seats. We went there for a Jim Brickman concert and were sorry by the end of the night. This place needs to be gutted.

We went to see Justin Hayward in concert. We had not ever been to this theatre before. It was very intimate, which was great! Justin Hayward always puts on such a great show! This was the perfect venue for this type of concert.

This is a lovely venue. Great for seeing a play, comedian or band. Small size means there is virtually not a bad seat in the house. Interior is modern and clean. Comfortable soft seats. Highly recommended.

My husband and I attended a concert here a few nights ago. A note on the parking and entry...if you park in the 7th Street Station as we did, it's a short walk to College Street and the venue. But what you may find confusing...More

What an intimate character-filled former church turned theatre! I have only seen a few concerts and a comedy show within these hallowed walls, but all events have been fantastic! Standard Blumenthal pricing is in effect when it comes to the concessions. Don't forget the always...More
