The actors are professional, most broadway quality. The seats are comfy and spacious compared to NYC theaters. The sound system is perfect all the way to the back of the theater. There are all kinds of restaurants within walking distance. This place is the best!

We saw “Newsies” which was excellent. The theater is very comfortable and well maintained. Lots of pleasant helpful staff. The bar opens an hour before showtimes and they really push the drinks both at the bar and with waiter service in your seat at intermission....More

I've been here twice, once with my grandkids, and once with my daughter. It is a very lovely local theater, with plenty of leg room. I would recommend it.

Season Ticket Holder from the first show. 10+ years ago. One of the best purchases I've ever made. Fantastic show's by professional SAG performers.

Just saw "In The Heights" here, and it was excellent. The lighting, staging, singing, dancing was worthy of Broadway. The talent is top notch. So glad we have this in our area!

No. Most attendees dress in casual attire, but I have seen people wearing "date night" clothing at evening performances.
