Good sized venue, modern with nice decor, great for pretty much any performance. (minor quibble: women's washrooms down a couple levels)

I was fortunate enough to see The Loin King here and it was fantastic. The Theatre is gorgeous that has nice lay out. The Bar is conveniently located directly in the doors, although it is a bit small it makes for an Internet setting.

No, the seats are permanently fixed. The venue is really a theatre. The good side is that the seating is tiered, so all seats have a great view of the stage. Hope you go see a great concert !
