I attended a jazz/holiday concert by Dave Koz. He was amazing. The sound quality in the theater was exceptional. The seats were cozy and it was difficulty to maneuver through the aisle once people were seated. The architecture and designs were beautiful.

A beautifully restored venue. Well worth the visit. A prime example of the era it was constructed. Seating somewhat tight. Beautiful acoustics. Would love to see a bigger attendance for such a wonderful symphony orchestra

The mezzanine is the intermediate floor above the orchestra. So up stairs, yes. But not as high as the balcony.
