  • We love going to The Armory! Comfortable seats, well mannered crowd, warm cookies for a $1.00 during intermission. Plays are always well done.  more »

  • The services, staff and venue are all top notch. The curation of works that come through are really great. In all the times I've been, everything has been really great and well done. They have snacks and adult libations. Seating is a little tight but this is very common for venues like this. The facility is modern, classy and has character. This venue is very near and dear to me, lots of fantastic artists, please treat it and the people with utmost respect!
  • Beautiful venue. Looking forward to coming again for more shows/concerts. Particularly love that they have honor system coffee and cookies available so that the intermission lines are only for the alcoholic beverages: this is exceptionally sensible. The rake in the orchestra seating is wonderful: good sight lines even with an elevated hairstyle on the person sitting in front of me! Stage appears to have full features although it is not large. Very good sound system. High quality operation.
