There is not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are wonderful. The seats are comfortable enough. Take a few moments to gaze at the ceiling while you are there. Restrooms are conveniently located, but there aren't enough of them.

This is a beautiful building offering great shows, but the line to use the tiny restroom facilities is a problem for anyone suffering an "urgency." Like every place in Harrisburg, parking is a problem, even evenings and weekends.

Attended the POPS Series with James Bond music as the show. The conductor and musicians do an excellent job with funny props to go along with the stories, and then of course the music typically with great vocalists!
