Great gig, OK venue. Seating rows on the balcony are very close-can be a little uncomfortable if you have long thighs. Seating on the sides of the balcony limits the views of the stage. Acoustics are good for a small venue, and the architecture is...More

Seeing Jimmy Buffett in a small intimate setting was definitely a bucket list item. Great venue to see Jimmy Buffett.

We’ve seen Jimmy Buffet here three times now. The venue is special, but be prepared for what to expect. First it’s tiny. Second, it’s old. Third it’s unique and full of character. A Victorian music hall, closed up for sixty years and reopened in the...More

Great venue to see a show! Saw Jimmy Buffett there and it was spectacular. The theater itself includes a main floor and a balcony. The bar includes limited selections, but is very efficient. Toilets are not sufficient for large shows, but it's not too much...More

It is a nice venue, old but nice. My only complaint is that it is too hot in there. Entry was easy but long lines for the bathroom and the bar.

We saw Jimmy Buffet at La Cigale at the end of September. What a show! La Cigale is comfortable, well organized and a great place to see live music.

First visit 9.23.17. The efficient entry was encouraging. However, once inside the venue proved to be understaffed, poorly ventilated, and awkwardly laid out. The upstairs appeared to have fixed seats which all had an excellent view of the stage in quite close proximity. The general...More
