Over the years I've seen symphonies, standup comics, movies, speakers, plays, bands- it's always a good time, good acoustics, good seats.

I am not huge at 5'11" and 190lbs, but when you restore theatres, try and make the chairs a bit wider at the expense of selling less tickets. I don't like two hour shows where I can't move. Saw Dave Sedaris.

I grew up in Frederick MD, but never had occasion to go to the Weinberg. Recently I have been for a few shows and I have really enjoyed it. I plan to go to another show in a few months!

The Weinberg Center offers great entertainment at a very reasonable price and they even give military discounts. My husband and I enjoyed many concerts, some spur of the moment, at the Weinberg.

We caught a 1940's Big Band musical review by the String of Pearls band and In The Mood singers/dancers. Very enjoyable especially in the "old" venue.
