Just saw Rock Of Ages- completely amazing! Cast was crazy talented- Katherine Lozon, Nick Folkes, Jeanie Reuter, Peter Sanders, Chris Kiriziran, Steven Jones and Alex Reynolds- completely reminded me of the big hair bands. Harmonies were awesome.

Enjoyed a theater presentation recently that included food. The food was amazingly good and the show was a lot of fun. I don't think there is a bad seat in the theater.

We enjoyed seeing The Chieftains perform in Youkey Theatre. The lighting & sound crews did a great job. The ushers were most helpful. The restrooms were well-maintained. The parking lot staff was most helpful and friendly.

We saw Mannheim Steamroller in December and really enjoyed show. The theatre was very comfortable. The parking was a little tight so should get to performance early. All the seats seem good and the acoustics are good. The staff were all helpful and knowledgeable.
