“Really Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We had a really lovely time here, but as other reviewers have mentioned, it's a tad on the cramped side but great for seeing every square inch of the show

“little jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

little is correct as the theater is very small. As an audience one feels very close to the performers. The only things is that for people with mobility issues it is less great.

“Enjoyed It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We saw 9 to 5 in the spring and loved it! I loved having live theatre so close to home. Much fun and will definitely see more performances!

“Mady Centre a fine addition to Five Points”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

In the 18 months since the Mady Centre opened it's doors I've enjoyed a wide variety of arts offerings in a flexible and intimate setting. With programming ranging from professional theatre to contemporary dance, from folk music to black tie fundraiser, and from homegrown musicals to jazz choirs The Mady often surprises, and is a great compliment to our larger performance venues. I usually park nearby and enjoy a meal at one of the downtown's diverse dining establishments and, if time permits, I take guests through the nearby galleries & shops which feature many of the city's fine individual artists.
