We saw the Terpsichorde Dance performance in June and were favorably impressed with the Theatre. Great sight lines, fairly intimate 500 ? seating, sound and lighting were good. The entrance is between two little cafes down the hallway into a small courtyard. THEN you get...More

We have attended many performances here at the Diana Wortham center. This is a quaint venue with every seat being great. Wine, beer and not n-alcoholic drinks are available. A marvelous place for shows!

I have no idea what is playing Dec 5, beside which that day is gone by. It takes about a half hour to get from downtown to the airport. You would need to take a taxi which would cost about $40. Kathryn
