One of my favorite intimate spots to see international and national shows.Meet and greet is somewhat common. Ticket prices has jacked up a bit in the last few years, but that's everywhere. Highly recommended.

The theater looks like it's been preserved just the way it was when it was built a long time ago. The acoustic for a rock n roll concert is excellent. The stage is not tall, I'm only 5 feet tall (1.53m) and it didn't go...More
