    Stunning setting, plush interior
    I worry when parking is literally right across the street, and to be fair, the entrance is lovely but narrow. How great will this be? Fantastically great! The tiles, the paint, the live organ music, the enormous snack bar (bear with me, I love fresh chocolate chip cookies and reasonably priced water at public venues). The bathrooms are huge and clean.The acoustics are fantastic. The staff is polite and lovely. The hall itself is oozing with grandeur. I would go back there again.

    With a beautiful remodel, this is an excellent theater for concerts, including symphony, opera, etc. Plan to go earkly so you can look around the lobby and other areas, as this theater has gone through a remarkable remodel. The acoustics are perfect. You will enjoy any performance in this venue!
