This was a nice theatre to catch a local musical. Every seat would be good - the first 2 rows may be too close - have to bend neck. We enjoyed Catch me if you can.

We went to a great concert by a rock band, LP 45's ( I think). It was outside the theater. They were fantastic and so was the dancing! Such a wonderful way to spend our last night in Rochester.

The RCT continues to produce outstanding shows year after year. Not the big city with travelling broadway talent, but outstanding direction, dance, humor, and small venue. We thoroughly enjoyed recent production of The Producers. Laugh for laugh, song for song, great value.
