Very nice performance. Smaller venue so seeing the show was not a problem. Easy to grab tickets on their website as well.

I am unsure whether we were there at the wrong time, but the building was closed. Not sure whether you have to actually be attending a show to get inside

Came here twice. The first time to see view the nice French Colonial architecture theatre, and the second to watch a performance. To appreciate the beauty of this somewhat small venue, it is best to watch a performance.

The architecture is just gorgeous and we would have liked to have seen a show there but nothing was on. Really worth a look at this gorgeous old world white bulding, just for the architecture

We saw a man with a jacket, many in shorts, but all with footwear and no g-strings. Unless you perform in a circus show.
