What Our Guests Are Saying

This is a beautiful space. The acoustics are great. If you're buying tickets for a concert, there are no bad seats. The lobby and common areas are roomy and welcoming, and the restrooms are clean and fully stocked. I enjoyed my event.

We watched a show here and felt very welcome by the staff. They were warm and friendly. The lobby/mezzanine was clean and well lit. Lots of space to walk around in before the show started. Will come back.
