Not a bad seat in the house. Been there numerous times. First-rate performances. The people in ticketing are easy to work with also if you need to change tickets. Great parking available.

Went to see the Madison symphony orchestra here. Fantastic venue, basically a mini-broadway experience in madtown. Very elegant. I highly recommend it if they bring in some interesting events.
