“louis black”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

was invited, heard he was great, so went along, you know, i liked opening guy better! black's joke subjects bored me, and when he screams you cant understand what he says! didnt LOL once like i did with essman, james, klein. not my type of comedian.
as far as venue, it is in so much need of an upgrade. you have to go all the way around to a certain area to get to bathrooms, the exit from parking lot (and the entrance) is a horror show (do like we do, park on top of hill and walk down), the sight views are not high enough above the row in front, so sit upstairs in 1st row.

“Frankie Vali and the 4 seasons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Frankie was terrific. Hasn't lost his touch at all and still hits the high notes. The Seasons look like they are in the 30's so I don't think they are any originals in there. The comedian that came on before Frankie was absolutely hysterical. He had everyone laughing out loud. Great show.

“Westbury Music Fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

No matter how many times they change the name, it will always be The Westbury Music Fair. Small, intimate theater in the round but still the best place to see a concert. Just saw Frankie Valli.....78 years old and the guy is amazing.

“Straight No Chaser show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We forgot how much fun it is to see a show here. Haven't been here since it was
Westbury Music Fair- years ago! The venue is far more intimate than most, you can actually see everything on the stage without binoculars! The show itself was phenomenal- if you get a chance to catch them, definitely see Straight No Chaser- they are a fantastic a capella group!

“Theater in the Round but beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Yes the stage is meant to rotate so there are no bad seats. BUT many of their shows don't utilize the round feature so you could be off to the side.

Also beware of the parking lot attendants. They will try to get you to pay for "VIP" parking, which is nothing more than a spot a little closer to the theater. It's unnecessary.

Everything being said, it's a good place to see a show when you don't want to have to travel to Manhattan.
