We were seated at the front of the mezzanine which gave us a good view of the stage, but there is no leg room. Thankfully Chicago was fabulous and that helped take our minds off the seats! The price of wine at $27 dollars, even...More

We purchased front row seats on the mezzanine and happy as the seats are small and squashed but more comfortable as no one in front of us. It’s a small theatre but this makes the atmosphere even more exciting. The only problem we found were...More
