Theatre was easy to find, lots of underground pay parking close by. The theatre is just the right size, every seat is a good one. Concessions available, lots of friendly staff. Overall a very pleasant experience.

I was privileged to attend the first concert in this theatre. Over the years, regardless of the performance, I have been thrilled by the acoustic level, the comfort and the variety of the performers/performances. Perhaps the audience is too relaxed and could honour our guests...More
