Inside the Art Museum and a lovely comfortable venue but Palm Springs cannot draw top drawer talent unless they are "over the hill" or has beens.

Small theatre, maybe 3,000 max. Extremely varied performers. Check online close to the show date: we got tix in the 3rd row for Lord of the Dance; probably a patron that released their seats. The balcony is not good for shows like the B-52's because gays dance facing backwards.

Saw two plays here and enjoyed them both immensely. Acting/directing/sets were excellent - very lovely venue and professional all around.

This movie on the hour and half hour is very well done. Good sound and covers a huge amount in about 20 minutes. Comfortable little theatre.

The space itself is very nice, not too big and not too small so you can really see the performer. The problem I had is with the seats. They must be in a conspiracy with the airlines. I am a small person (5' 6" and 140lbs) so this is not an obese problem. The problem is long, long rows with... More

This play was very cleverly done. The four actors did a great job of playing numerous roles with different costume changes, accents, etc. We sat in the "cheap seats", which are the back two rows of the theater, but still saw and heard everything well. It's not necessary to be familiar with Hitchcock's work to enjoy this play, but if... More

I like the size of the room because you can see pretty well from anywhere. Try to attend an event as they offer... More

This is a great theatre to visit whether you live in Palm Springs or are a tourist. It's small and personal, there are no bad seats, lots of leg room and comfortable seats. The shows change often and are always interesting.
