“Nice renovation and funny play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

Beautiful old theater recently renovated. Not "stadium" seating though, so a tall person in front may block your view. Acoustics were good, but a little more volume might help.Saw a very funny play about JFK and his affair with a Danish journalist in early 1942.
Tickets were $ 32 each

Saw Inga Binga on opening night and really enjoyed it. A story about JFK's short time (and fling) in Charleston.
