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 time parking and walking.

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 stadium-style high rise seating with no visual obstructions affords a good view of the stage for the entire audience. Great for dance and multi-media shows. Hill Auditorium a block away is better for acoustic music like the symphony or an capella group.
