    There's not a bad view in the house. Hit the balcony bars when you can, much less crowded.

    Beautiful renovated theatre. The drinks leave a bit to be desired. Go to Congress Bar and Grill a few storefronts down on Congress st if you want a great drink and meal.

    State Theatre is a nice venue for music. The atmosphere is intimate and the acoustics good. The architecture is nice, well appointed inside. Perfect for Jim Brickman, who didn't disappoint.

    Easily my favorite small concert venue. Not a bad seat our standing area in the house and a great lineup every year.

    The State gets great acts but with no smoking area or readmission they set themselves up for failure. The security is heavy handed and ultimately a buzz kill. TSA style pat downs at the door.

    Well kept neat little theater with a descent in house PA. There is actually a dock for load in too, which is a bonus for an old theater.

    Bring your earplugs. Apparently the sound mixers don't realize that turning all the levels up doesn't make the show rock more, it just causes headaches.

    One of the best venues in the state... if the beer lines get crazy don't forget about the upper bars - including the upper balcony.
