The venue has theater-style seating in the center of the lower floor and entire balcony, with tiered standing areas on the sides of the lower level. There is not a bad place to sit/stand for viewing the stage and the sound quality was quite good. If there is a musical or other performing act that you like appearing there, I... More

This was the third time I've attended a concert at the Variety. And the first one that didn't have standing room between the seats and stage. I liked it much better.

I love the... More

The show I attended was general admission and sold out the lay out works with seating in the... More

Love seeing shows here -- so smart to have half of the room with seats and half standing room so you can decide how you want to enjoy the show.
