The staff is second to none! The make you feel totally at home! I appreciated this especially because it's been years since I went to the theater and was concerned of being awkward. Every seat in the theater is a great seat! The theatre is small and quaint but very comfortable!
I saw The Hello Girls in theater A, I was surprised and thrilled by how small the theater was. I really felt like the action was taking place all around me. The facilities were great and while I didn't get anything at the bar, the selection seemed to be quite surprisingly good. I was really impressed by my experience here overall.
