  • 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
