Went to see Dueling Pianos on 1/30 and had a great time. Show was sold out but we weren't packed in like sardines. Acoustics are great. There is a bar downstairs that lets you bring your drink into... more »
The Knauer Center is a wonderful addition to West Chester and the surrounding area. I have seen a few plays here and the performances were always top notch. This time I attended a much smaller venue.... more »
This is a nicely restored venue in the borough if West Chester. The auditorium is not too large, so you can see and hear the performance very easily. There is a bar inside with some snacks. The hallway outside of the entrance can become congested with bar patrons waiting in line and milling about. On street parking was easy the night I attended. There are parking garages within walking distance.
I have been to 3 shows there since I discovered it for myself. They have plays and concerts and the prices are very reasonable. Also seem to be able to find parking at no charge only a few blocks away for the center. Easy walk to many resturants for a before or after show dinner.
