Saw Wynton Marsalis & his band at Lincoln Art Center during The National Black Arts Festival. I'd never been inside before. Good acoustics. I'll go back for future shows now that I know the set up.

I like the restaurants, although some can be pricey. I like the Alliance, and I like the museum. The only thing I don't like (and... More

We attended a play in the small theater. It was excellent. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The acting was superb! The Arts Center is Beautiful.

All that the Woodruff Arts Center hosts is wonderful to see...grand enough for productions and intimate enough to enjoy one on one with the performers.
