Saw a terrific play there Friday night. Large jazz show coincident. The main lobby is visually spectacular - a real anchor for the arts downtown. Multiple halls for all sorts of events. Well marked - convenient to parking.

Don't go any higher than tier 1, I personally only do box seat depending on what your going to see grand tier is good but if it's a concert not so good as people stand in front of you and you can't see when they do.
