“Great show, slightly disappointing venue”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

I took my daughter to see Mamma Mia and the show was fantastic, but this performing arts all leaves a little to be desired. The sound was at times either deafeningly loud or you could hardly hear the actors speaking.
The staff was just ok, some were very friendly and a few seemed annoyed with their job in general and were just plain crabby, specifically the fellow in the box office and the ushers.
My major complaint was the seating. The seats are very small and uncomfortable. The aisle between the rows seemed less than a foot wide and it was almost impossible to get out unless the others in your row actually got up and left the aisle to clear a path. At one point a reached down to grab my purse and bumped my forehead against the back of the head of the woman sitting in front of me! How embarrassing!
I won't pay that much money again to sit uncomfortable for 2+ hours. I prefer the Artis (aka: The Phil) in Naples.

“Check it out!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The performances are equal to Broadway. Check out the season and go and enjoy. It does an excellent job.

“Depends where you sit!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Acoustics are not very good. Have been here and in the upper balcony and not been able to hear. Have seen plays and concerts and have limited what we see and do here.

“A great theatre but steep stairs”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The last time I went, my daughter & I saw Les Miseralbes. The interior is attractive & well kept. However, the stairs towards the top seats are extremely steep so if you go with an elderly person, make sure to help them up.
