What a great theater. Parking was easy and right across the street. Cost was only $8 which I thought was reasonable. Bathrooms were clean. All of the employees were extremely friendly. Snacks were high priced but that is to be expected. Would come back.

I went to see the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live Show, and it was a lot of fun! I am actually not into plays/Broadway/musicals but this performance (because the crowd is allowed to react) made me feel a little bit more welcome. I have Autism, and it's kinda hard for me to sit still for 2 hours for a play without reacting. This review however is not for the show but instead the theater itself. Pros: - Almost every seat is a good view. - Comfortable seats on the first floor of the theater. - Very nice staff - Very quick to get in the theater (unlike it's sister theater the Benedum Center) Cons: - The seats on the balcony are NOT plus size friendly, I felt very scrunched up in the legs, my Mom directed me to empty seats on the first floor which were MUCH better! - Most of these shows that they advertise are kids shows, I barely missed the MST3K ad shown on the sign. Overall, good theater but I do kinda wish it was more used other than kids shows. However, I am somewhat of a Daniel Tiger fan and I was going to see the Daniel show earlier this year... sadly I didn't know about it until last minute, but at least the MST3K show made up for it!

This is a very small but very beautiful venue. Great helpful staff. Seats are a little tight but it’s worth it

I got in to town for a conference and flipped through the "Pittsburgh" magazine that was in the hotel. I saw that a band I like was playing that evening. I pulled the place up and saw that it was less than a 10 minute walk from my hotel, so I figured I'd catch a show. You go through a metal detector to get inside, which was new for me when going to a show. There is a small bar area if you want a beverage. The inside is beautiful early 1900's architecture and decor. I was up in the cheap seats but I still had a good view. There is probably not a bad seat in the house. I think the chairs were a little too close together, and they got to be a little uncomfortable, so I had to do a little wiggling around. I walked, so I don't have any idea where you would park at, but don't count on parking on the street -- the area is fairly congested. I felt safe walking to and from the place at night. All in all, a cozy little venue that has architectural elements that you don't see much of anymore. Plenty of places to eat nearby.
