Convienent location in the downtown are of Miami. The theater/building has been an icon of the downtown for a very long time. It was renovated many years ago to keep it thriving.

“A Perfect Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Located on the Campus of The University of Miami this venue is small (capacity around 1,000) and the acoustics are perfect. Saw a performance last night and found it to be roomy and comfortable. Right now there is construction all around that area of UM's Campus so parking can be challenging, but the venue is a delight.
