Went to see The Illusionists with the wife and child. Brought tickets at the last minute and had stool seats, but more comfortable than I thought. Great views and sound. Wished they had discounted tickets for kids. Silly to spend full price for a child.

This is a great venue with terrific acoustics and comfortable seating. Whether you are on the floor or up in the balconies the view and sound is excellent. Easy parking as well.

Funny, sad and entertaining all at the same time. This is especially enjoyable for anyone who know Shakespeare, but even for those of us who do not.

I'm looking at the seating chart for The Ellie but I do not understand how the balconies, mezzanine, parterre and orchestra "stack". Does the Mezz hang over the Parterre? Any suggestions for seating? I'm hoping to see Book of Mormon there in September. Thanks for your help.
