Staff is well versed in seating, food, drink etc. & very, very pleasant. You can not find a bad seat, a plus with tickets occasionally pricy.

From off-Broadway Plays, to the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, to various Comedians and other concerts, this venue offers something to please nearly everyone that is a fan of the arts! Bring a sweater; the air conditioning was definitely running on high!

This venue is located on college campus, consequently, tricky to get in and out easily. It has good acoustics but somewhat convoluted access n seating. Performance was entertaining , although not New York Bdwy. Quality. If you go, spring for pricier tickets on lower level.

I’ve never been to that particular concert. The dress code for the venue seems to be from very casual to dressy. I never wear jeans but dress pants or a dress is appropriate.

We like parking around back but if there's another event on campus that night at the new arena you'll be searching for a parking spot so leave plenty of time then. But it looks like April 5 should be easy parking.
