My family and I went to see Rock of Ages at the Van Wezel. A great venue for a great production. The music and talent was awesome. The hall itself is a work of art and their really isn't a bad seat in the house. We can't hardly wait to go back this March for The Moody Blues. We have seen them live about 20 times but the Van Wezel may stand alone after this: just great acoustics and a beatiful concert hall.

We make a point of coming to the Van Wezel during our annual visit to Sarasota whatever is playing and we are never disappointed. Apart from the shows we marvel at the wonderful architecture and location of the Hall.

The amazing quality of this hall is spectacular. The presentations are the best in all the area with every seat being a great view of the performances. The staff is kind and informative and very professional. Truly a pleasure and a blessing to have this gem in our area. Formality and informality combine to make a wonderful artistic evening out.
