Great lineup of Broadway and Vegas stars. I did not like the play we saw since the distance was far. Front balcony is ok for viewing most shows. No screens-big disappointment. Free parking as well as valet.

I love the venues at the kravis. The broadway shows are fantastic. They also have great concerts and I am so glad to continue my subscription each year because of how much I enjoy the performances. The concerts are great. I also love the rinker playhouse for the smaller venues. So nice to live down the street and walk there.

Went to see a show and I was pleasantly pleased with the seats. Reminded me of broadway. Loved the free parking and easy in and out after a show.
