We went to a one-man concert show in the basement theatre. It was fun and interesting. Important tip is to get there early if you want a seat with clear sightline of the stage.

There are about 50 fold-up chairs and about four feet from the stage. The actors do a great job. Very edgey content. Its not located in the best of areas but parking garage is next door.
