Beautiful place to hear music or see a play. Excellent acoustics and comfortable seating. There is great variety in the season...something for everyone. Glad this wonderful venue exists.

Be sure and go for the Tues or THurs tour at 10:00. Interesting architecture, story and Chihuly glass installations.

State of the art venue. Great performances. If Doug Montgomery is on the schedule, get a front row seat. He's a very talented and terrific performer.

My huband and I went on a tour of the Spencer theater and found it to be great venue. The Chihuly glass work present everywhere are amazinng. Our tour was led by the Director and we saw all the backstage workings of the theater as well. The enthusiasm of the staff and love for the bulding are amazing. A must visit for the architecture and the are as well as the productions.

Missed seeing a performance at this surprisingly modern venue. However, we had a wonderful tour of the inner workings of the Spencer Theater thanks to our marvelous guide.
