We were there for a recital (piano / vocal). The space is warm and inviting. Excellent sound. NO complaints. A great addition to the town.

No shows on while we were there, but visited the museum / permanent exhibition. Many photographs of Katherine and her life. No charge for entry, but donate if you want. Worth a visit while in Old Saybrook.
