My husband and I went to see Bruce Springsteen here. It was our first time at this venue. What a beautiful theatre! It is a small theatre which lends itself to a very intimate experience. Perfect for the Springsteen show which was fantastic.

Great place for the Springsteen on Broadway show. The theater is small enough to make you feel close to the stage. Beautiful theater, comfortable chairs.

Small, historic theater. All seats have good view of stage, feels intimate. Springsteen was sensational but by the end of the show, just wanted to stand up and move. Seats are short on leg room with minimal padding and quite uncomfortable for a three hour...More
