We have been to many shows here and have always enjoyed the venue. The sound is great and it is an intimate theater. We always get center balcony seats which are fantastic. My only negative, the bathrooms are limited so plan accordingly...

I love old theaters that are restored in what seems to be historically accurate. Seats were comfortable and the sound was lovely. Easy to get in and out. A fine venue.

I once read that there are not, however, in my opinion, I would opt for the center seats as opposed to the ones on the side. I also try to get close to the front and end of a row. Enjoy the show!
