Great concert venue. The music sounds good and you can see well from any seat. I've been more than 25 concerts here easy and never had a bad time. Check it out.

This venue has many features from the early 1900's when it was built. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics for sound are amazingly good for a venue of this age. Well maintained and clean. Very elegant and nostalgic. Enjoy the architecture...More

I think if someone is there they would allow it. I hope you have the chance, it's truly beautiful architecture! 😀
I'm trying to get tickets to Hamilton which is obviously not an easy task. Where is a good place to sit, where i am able to see the stage well that is still affordable?

I sat in the back, almost to the door. It was not a great spot. Balcony might be best.
I will be seeing Bill Maher from orchestra pit 5 row 3, tickets 503, 504. Will we be able to see him very well if he stands center stage? How many yards approx. is that? 30 yards?
