I attended a jazz/holiday concert by Dave Koz. He was amazing. The sound quality in the theater was exceptional. The seats were cozy and it was difficulty to maneuver through the aisle once people were seated. The architecture and designs were beautiful.

Sat in the orchestra section so had a great view of the show. The theater is very elegant. The third row has more leg room then further back.
