We went to the 7/10/16 afternoon performance of South Pacific with my 93 year old mother, who has to use a walker--as did quite a few people I observed. It was not made very clear to us when we asked where the handicap entrance was? We found it, but we ended up on the wrong side of the entrance. Fortunately,... More

We saw South Pacific and it was so much fun. Actors were great. Only problem, and we were in the middle, second row, and parts of the the show took place stage left and stage right, and we couldn't hear the words of the actors. We attended a show at the Free Fall Theater in the afternoon, and they had... More

Saw the St. Petersburg Opera Company's "La Boheme" here at the Palladium tonight and it was a great venue for an intimate experience of a classic opera. I have been here for other events, mostly concerts and the acoustics have improved a great deal since they first opened. This former church and now historic building creates a great atmosphere for...

Small charming historic venue. A definite find for those who enjoy performances. In a really small theatre. I have attended several performances at several different price points for the tickets. I don't think there is a bad seat in house. Also they have added several. Additional bathroom stalls which shortens the wait

I recently attended a performance of The Abduction from the Seraglio. My seat was in the last row of the balcony. Sight lines and audio were impressive! There was no artificial amplification so the sound was pure. A memorable experience.

Saw The Hit Man there last night. What a great show. These guys are very entertaining. Performed for 2 hours and did not stop. The theater is very unique.

If you want to experience a night club type venue for jazz or other musical entertainment of an intimate nature, visit the Side Door for changing entertainment. You sit at Tables. Mostly first come...first served but some reserved seating at some shows. Limited parking so get here early, Oh, you are in a deconsecrated church from the 1920's too. Easy... More

Seems throughout the year you will find something for everyone. Wonderful variety of shows to suit most tastes. Very good acoustics if you like concerts. We love the fact that it's not huge and the decor is fascinating, and we always seem to have a good experience.

We went to see a family member perform in an opera. The acoustics were good, but the seats were a little rugged for me. Good view of stage - the performers were elevated and acted around the small orchestra which was center stage. We loved the architecture in the foyer and side hall. This is a converted church. They could... More
