“A real jewel for Mesa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I've only been to concerts or shows, not the classes, but the Ikeda theater is fabulous. I've never had a bad seat, and the acoustics are brilliant.

“great architecture, especially outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Although most of its bookings don't interest me, I enjoy walking around outside, taking photographs, and visiting the gift shop. It's definitely an exciting addition to the downtown area of Mesa.

“Some terrific concerts and shows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We've seen Hal Holbrook, Yitchak Perlman and others that were spectacular - and the occasional show that was a dud. But the venue is first rate -

Parking is easy, though some lots may charge when there is a major event.

There's a small contemporary art museum - not my style, though others seemed to enjoy it.
