A nice performing arts center in Richmond. A few restaurants within walking distance and parking across the street. They have a wonderful Christmas show.

“Nicer than Landmark theater ...”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Bit small but has nice ambience; it would be nice if it was tad bigger to host Broadway shows.

“Saw Aida here- very nice”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

We went and saw Aida by the Virginia Opera Company here- theater has a lot of character- inside is very interesting and decor adds a lot of interest. We had nosebleed seats in the back and for my 6'2' husband, it was cramped for a 3.5 hour production! However, we saw that the main ground level seats were much roomier- we got what we paid for! But we could still hear and see the performance and the ushers were organized with seating people. Enjoyed the production a lot and theater was fun venue.
