This is a superb facility with great acoustics and comfortable seating. The seats likewise have great views. The facility is close to transit and so you don't have to drive if you don't want to. We really enjoyed the performance here.

Local and international artists and shows are highlighted in their season. (I have seen Michael Feinstein and Petula Clark upclose!) Subscriptions are also priced well if you are local. Check out their social networks for other deals- like rentals and such. *Arrive early and try to find local parking.
