We went to see Justin Hayward in concert. We had not ever been to this theatre before. It was very intimate, which was great! Justin Hayward always puts on such a great show! This was the perfect venue for this type of concert.

This is a lovely venue. Great for seeing a play, comedian or band. Small size means there is virtually not a bad seat in the house. Interior is modern and clean. Comfortable soft seats. Highly recommended.

My husband and I attended a concert here a few nights ago. A note on the parking and entry...if you park in the 7th Street Station as we did, it's a short walk to College Street and the venue. But what you may find confusing is that from this direction you approach the *back* of the theater (which is shared... More

What an intimate character-filled former church turned theatre! I have only seen a few concerts and a comedy show within these hallowed walls, but all events have been fantastic! Standard Blumenthal pricing is in effect when it comes to the concessions. Don't forget the always affordable five dollar parking rate. Just be sure to park in the designated garages! The... More

We visited this place to see a concert. As others have stated, there isn't a bad seat in the house. We set in the balcony on the 3rd row and I felt like we were close to the stage. The sound was good and the overall feel was wonderful. The stained glass windows are gorgeous. The seats were comfortable. This... More

Went for a comedy show, seats are comfortable and basically all have good views.Theater used to be a church but does not look so much like one on the inside compared to the outside.Parking is conveniently located across the street behind the Levine Museum & you can purchase a parking ticket pass for five dollars.

This beautiful location seats under 1,000 people and there are no bad seats or angles in here. Getting in and out is a little crowded since it is so old, but go see a show here, you will love the look off the old stained-glass windows at the top.

We had our first visit to the theater to see a Colin Hay concert in February. All the normal cliches apply-- there's not a bad seat in the house, etc. It is a very intimate setting. The acoustics were very good. There are beautiful stained glass windows. Everyone was very helpful. I had purchased our tickets online and had also... More

Saw a great comedy show here on Friday night. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Picked up our tickets at Will Call without a hitch. The theatre is small but the seating, as others have noted, is nicely arranged. The only thing is the seating is a bit tight. We heard a lot of people complaining that they... More

The seats are setup nicely, which offers great viewing from all angles. The staff was friendly & courteous. The theater is within walking distance from most uptown hotels. I would visit again!
