Still a good place to see a play

This 1970's landmark is still a good place to see a play or concert. The nice walk to the center through a very pretty part of UofM campus is worth savoring. Plan to allow for... read more

Ann Arbor really should be able to find the dollars to design and build a larger modern replacement for this facility. New seating would be welcome. The sterile concrete walls with concrete form lines just does not fit with a fine arts facility. Rest rooms down the basement? And poorly laid out. Come on.. "The Music Man" production just put...

Fantastic performance. Kaila Medieros is one to watch ... she played the innkeepers wife and stole the show. As adorable as young Cossette was, that was hard to do! Wonderful theater space, as good or better as any on Broadway.

Great venue for wide variety of performing arts. We raised our daughter in A2, and throughout her childhood she had the opportunity to see Broadway stars in concert, the Royal Shakespeare Company in residence, Baryshnikov in solo dance tour, various bands, you name it. Along with Rackham Auditorium, U of M has the best performance venues in the Midwest, and... More

There really isn't a bad seat here. The place is small enough to feel close to the performers but big enough for larger productions.

We were invited to attend a concert of Pink Martini and found the theatre excellent. All of the seats are good and the way it was built gives everyone a clear view of the stage. The sound is great and the seats comfortable. We were very impressed with the theatre, and if you ever get a chance to hear Pink... More
