What a wonderful venue to see a great show. There isn’t a bad seat in the House! They have top notch performers and very reasonable fees for a Broadway type show. Good parking and close to many good restaurants.

Great historic venue, beautiful inside but the acoustics are terrible! Singer spoke to her audience and we all kept looking at each other wondering what she said. Her singing was beautiful but again the acoustic was awful. Wouldn’t go back for a concert.

Beautiful theater. Historic building and that has many renovations. Saw great concert there. The lobby was gorgeous and had a little Runway where we could take pictures. I'm thinking lots of concerts and plays there. We'll come back for more shows

This place was an excellent venue to have front row seats to see an amazing artist and guitarist, Joe Bonamassa! The venue is intimate, so is not crazy and rowdy. The concert was fabulous! I highly recommend seeing any band and artists that you like...More

It all depends on what you are going to see. There to watch a rock concert, play etc. I went and saw DAughtry last year and wore casual pants and a nice shirt. Not a t-shirt.
