We had a great time at the performance. The seats are nice and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. The only complaint was that the music was recorded, not live. I feel I should take advantage of this theater more...More

There really is not a bad seat in the house. A good place to see ballet, modern dance and opera, as well as musicians of all stripes, including jazz and blue grass.
