There is not a bad seat in the place, and the acoustics are great. Saw Lyle Lovett there- excellent!!

I actually never went into the Theatre. My husband and I were considering going to see the Joan. Rivers show but sadly Joan was admitted to hospital the day before. We drove to the theatre anyway, just because I wanted to see the theatre mainly because of the name...my dad was a huge Count Basie fan...I was happy just say... More

The venue is always presenting top shows, acts, performers, etc.. Many are just going to NYC or heading out to AC, Philly, etc.. The acoustics are ok for an old theater and every effort is made to bring the level and sound to the standard for the show. Whether it's The Moody Blues, Dennis Miller or a Holiday Special, the...

We recently saw Heart here. We have seen a plethora from Tony Bennett, to Kevin James, Count Basie Orchestra, Get The Led Out and so much more. We are so glad that we have this venue within a 30 minute drive from where we live. Many good times and memories so close to home, thank you.

Liked the convenience to restaurants in the area. Parking is a little tricky. Get to your event a little early if possible.

I saw Heart here this past weekend, and have been here in the past for Joe Jackson and Steven Lynch. This venue has terrific acoustics, seats are not the roomiest in the world, but are OK for a big guy like me, and there are two bars - one inside, one outside, where the drinks are flowing and the lines...

Nice refurbsihing of a historic theatre. The acoustics are pretty good. The security staff does nothiong to ask patrons to sit down in their chairs. If your not a member of the Count Basie,you will never get good seats or any at all.

Great venue for shows and so convenient to go to. Enjoyed a free showing of the Beatles A Hard Days Night! A real community place with some very fine big name acts.
