Restored to old world grace and elegance. Sound quality is great. They've really expanded in recent years to bring in more diverse acts. We've seen everything from Ani DiFranco to Hot Tuna to Steve Earle there.

It's worth seeing at least one show in this theatre. Beautiful inside and out. Nothing like drinking a Pabst Tallboy.

The line toget into the venue was sol long when we walked up. I was thinking it would take forever to get in, but they really moved the people in and it only took minutes. Nice that they have bars on a few levels not just the first level. Also,nice to have bathrooms up in the balcony areas. I really liked the old charm this place had.

This is a great older, smaller theater. The acoustics are good. You can see the stage no matter where your ticket is, although I think the best row is K because you get some extra leg room. The seats are a bit smaller but they are ok. If it's a kid event, don't count on apple juice or kidfriendly snacks. Fine for older adults. We were there for a Laurie Berkner concert and it was great music and lighting.

I have seen several concerts here - both acoustic and electric, and I have to say that it's a great place to see one. There isn't a spot in the place that isn't close enough to feel intimate - you can see the nuances of the expressions of the performers from even the back seats. Also, the acoustics are very good, and plentiful, inexpensive parking is close by. SO much better than canvernous big-city auditoriums.
