I went to Notre Dame Glee Club Alumni concert, and it was amazing. Not only the price was really good (as well as the passes they offer), but also the acoustic was perfect for the vocals. 250 voices and I could listen to each of...More

We recently viewed the video taping of the live production from the London Stage of Amadeus. This performance was amazing. If you get an opportunity to experience this location you must give it a try.

This is a great setting with a close up view. There is not a bad seat in the house. The center has numerous concert halls, movie theater and performance stages. Just like everything else at Notre Dame it is first class.

It has comfortable seats and is overall just beautiful. I would only add signs that say no food allowed inside, rather than serving it outside and then have the ushers not allow you back inside. Seems a bit sneaky.
