I've seem mutiple shows here, both popular music and classical and I am never disappointed. The acoustics are great and there are these amazing Chihuly glass sculptures hanging from the ceiling in the lobby.

Musicians like Itzhac Perlman play here. Kids under 12 are not allowed. People dress up to go there. Convenient location in the middle of downtown. Can be pricey, but often have 1st row.

I like the balcony in the middle section or in the front but, anywhere is wonderful! Excellent sound everywhere. I think the box seats (on the sides) are above the $92 mark for certain shows. They can be really 'cozy'!
