Parking was easy - across the street. Stopped at 122 Bar Place right next door and had quick wings and chicken caesar salad (excellent). Theater is gorgeous and well staffed. Seats were comfortable. Show was awesome (Book of Mormon). Got out and back to the highway easily and quickly. Will go there again. Recommend!
Went and saw the Book of Mormon. It was a great show and a great production. The theater itself is beautiful and the lobby and stairs are very cool as is the theater itself. Unfortunately the seating is terrible. By that I mean I am average height and a little overweight. But nevertheless my knees were pressed hard into the seat back in front of me. The only way to sit even remotely comfortably was to sit crooked. If you are a smaller person this would not impact you. But anyone over 5'10" will run into this problem. That is the only reason for not a 5 star review. Also the people who worked at the theater were great! Really only problem is the seating
