Having performed there (children's play - "Wind in the Willows") and attended musical performances recently I am a biased fan of this landmark. You can not help looking 'Up and Around' at the marvelous restoration efforts, like some gawking tourist, admiring the artisanship that went into bring this grand old theater back from the devastating flood of 08. What ever venue or event which draws you in, please take a moment to look around.

Have seen several shows and totally enjoyed them as Fab 5 and the Buddy Holly show. Seats is good and just enjoy the theater itself.

The sound was sub-par, 4 girls were towards the nosebleed section cheering and dancing.. the elderly ushers got about 4 cops over there, to create a huge distraction to try and eject the ladies.. which lasted for about 3 of the 12 songs played.

This is one of those old time theaters with great architecture. I attended a concert here (Classical Mystery Tour) and it was great. Acoustics are good, seats are great (I did sit near the front). As another reviewer states, it is a step back in time. There are a couple bars that also offer popcorn. One bar offered a special drink that was very good.

My teens and I went here a few days ago to watch Shen Yun. I was initially disappointed to find my seats were so far away from the stage -- back in row Y. I had paid for the best seats available which were at the middle of a 5 tier pricing scale. However, we found that sitting virtually in the back of the ground floor of the theater still provided an spectacular view of the stage, performance as a whole and the individual performers.

The theater is well maintained a beautiful. The seats were wide and comfortable. The temperature was warm and pleasant in the mid-winter. The ushers were friendly and helpful. The entire place was clean. The acoustics were wonderful as was the lighting. I would definitely return here to see another show.
