    Great sound for music performances. If the showtime is listed as 8pm, it means the show starts at 8pm. Get there early if you're seated in the balcony.

    Arrive early if you are seated in the balcony. Long walk upstairs and if you are in the middle its a hike past lots of people.

    This place is just getting worse and management is apathetic or missing the mark. Staff is mindless and rules supersede crowd management and comfort. We were told re entry was ok then gave us trouble.
