Intimate atmosphere, but nice and updated. Had several bar areas on different floors, with a good selection of beverages. Clean bathrooms and lobby, with artwork throughout. Saw Chicago here recently, and the performances were really great! Would love to come back and see something else!
Lovely theater. Very classy and first rate performances. The show prices are reasonable. The staff is great. There really are no bad seats in the house, but I would encourage you not you wait till last minute to get seats as they tend to sell out. Best live venue in little rock
