Venue could use some renovations. Not much leg room, probably only 6 inches in between rows. Staff were super friendly.

We had mezzanine which on our visit was only accessible by an elevator that would only hold 4 people. Not sure everyone made it in in time. Seats are cramped and site lines not the best.

I went here to see Hamilton. The theater is very nice and the seats are comfortable. I loved the original architecture of the theater. It felt like an intimate setting and well worth my ticket price. The stairs to the mezzanine and balcony were a pain especially when it comes to leaving. They thoughtfully have people directing bathrooms at intermission as it seems many guests cannot function on their own. They need these same people to direct people out of the theater after the performance. It was crazy and people were being inconsiderate and taking pictures instead of walking. I guess that’s just today, where people are oblivious to what is around them.

We had never been to this theatre before, and we were very impressed. We went to see Hamilton (which was awesome) and had pretty good seats. You could see the stage clearly even if you were higher up in the mezzanine. The sound and lighting was great! It had an antiquated feel to it which enhanced the experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful in aiding us to our seats. They also sold merchandise and concessions. Overall a great place to see a show!

Attended the Hamilton performance. The show and cast was great! Venue was so/so. Bathrooms were gross and small. Overall the performance outweighed the lackluster venue.
