First of all, you cannot miss the electric entrance to this dynamic space. It glimmers on Broad Street, catching your eye with promise. The lobby area is inviting and offers an air of possibility - the past, tradition and future of a titanic force of...More

I've been to several plays at this playhouse and I have never been disappointed. The acoustics are great and there are no bad seats. The design is beautiful. I highly recommend visiting this location.
