Saw Bandstand from Mezzanine Row B, seats 18 - 22 (side mezz). The view was great, although like many other theaters, there is no leg room. It's a small theater, so I think you would have a great view from any location. There isn't a...More

These people really know how to run a theatre. The staff is friendly and efficient. The theater is large but has a small theatre feel. We saw "Bandstand" there in the orchestra section about 15 rows back. The seats were so perfect and close enough...More

This smaller, exquisite, historic theatre is perfect for a show set in the late 40's, with lots of swing music and dance. Mezzanine seats are great to see all of the action.
