Play performance is subpar. The performance is not as good as the Virginia Musical Theater performances. The worst thing about this theatre is that the Norfolk Police do not understand how to keep traffic flowing. This causes many to be late.

In December we attended the holiday show of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Choir and Raleigh Bell Ringers at the Sandler Center of the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. It was a terrific show. The artists and directors were exceptional and we enjoyed it very much.

We bought tickets online and no one told us that this "symphony" moves around with their concerts. We simply missed it, because we didn't know the right address, because it was impossible to find it.

I have had season tickets for the past few years and the Virginia Symphony never disappoints. The musical selections are interesting and beautifully performed.
