Never went to a show but was surprised just how beautiful this building is. Not into buildings myself but this was clean, and stood out. Shows every night but unable to attend one while we were there. Regret Number one.

I only saw the building from the outside at night. I recommend to do so. The neighborhood it is located is friendly and really beautiful with a lot of French architecture.
