My husband and I saw Shen Yun (Chinese dance and music show) and The Book of Mormon (comedy musical) here, and enjoyed both experiences very much. The venue is stunning. Seats are comfortable. Acoustics are excellent. Parking isn't a problem at all since there's a garage across the street. There are restaurants nearby to go to before or after shows.... More

It was a funny night. The place was packed. Mostly Baby Boomers so it turned out real nice. I laughed the whole night. I was seated in back but the view was good. The seats were spaced so it was easy getting in and out of the row. Excellent!

We have had main floor, balcony and box seats in this gorgeous venue. All have been terrific, but prefer box. Have seen performances ranging from comedy to opening night Don Giovanni and attended the opening night gala. Jeans to formal attire. It has all been great.

Went with my family to see WICKED. The balcony seats were great, the venue was easy to get to, the only problem we has was the seat space is kind of tiny. My husband is not an overly tall man and his knees were pressed into the seat in front of him. Other than a few cramps, we had a... More

First Show I have seen in this venue we had Balcony seats and they were perfect. For the cost difference I think you cant go wrong with this view vs floor seats. Acoustics were perfect. Little gem of a location in Detroit. Check out a show there if you get a chance.

Saw Wizard of Oz there and it was beautiful there. The parking was right across the street for 20 dollars and very easy. Inside is so nice all you can do is look at the ceilings and walls. The staff is so nice and informative. Seats are good just about anywhere. Just a great place to go and see anything

My wife and I attended the musical, Wicked. The seats we had were great, the show was great and the venue was decorated very nicely. The biggest problem was the bathrooms and the size of the lobby. As a few others have pointed out here, the lobby was entirely too small for the venue. Navigating through there was ridiculous. Way... More

Wonderful experience. Attended one of the last performances of "Wicked" before it moved on. Parking in the adjacent structure was excellent. Be sure to book it when you buy tickets. Stay together as it is easy to get separated. Traffic was a non-issue. Got off I-375 and in two minutes were in the parking structure. Leaving was the same except... More

We went to Wicked this past weekend (Wicked was outstanding by the way) and had an enjoyable experience. We had purchased box seats which I would highly recommend. The seats, the sound and the experience of the show was fabulous. The cons: the lot next to the theater had no accommodation for handicapped parking, so we needed to pay the... More
