My husband and I have seen several productions, concerts and performances at the Flynn. Whether a single singer or a production like Stomp, the Flynn works well for all. Acoustics are fine and seats relatively comfortable.

Our family came to Burlington to see a live performance. The place has about 30 rows of seats so that every one is close and you'll feel right at home here. The artwork and restoration are phenomenal. This is how live performances should be staged.
