Saw Spamalot in the Rinker Playhouse. First of all, the word "stage" to the average person means a raised platform for the entertainment. If you are not front row, center, you will have a horrible seat as the entire production is performed ON THE FLOOR!!...More

Went to see Hello Dolly with Betty Buckley. Unfortunately the best seats I could buy were the 1st row of the mezzanine. They were in the nose bleed section. Fortunately they have an excellent sound system so we could hear every word.

Nothing better than a front row center seat. The offering at the Rinker Playhouse was a tribute to Frank Sinatra. A full evening of Frank's most famous songs sung by a quartet of 2 men and 2 women, accompanied by a 3 piece band. Acoustics...More

I agree with the others here. Hilton West is the best in that immediate area. And City Place right next door is a wonderful experience for shopping, dining, and just hanging out.
