A big cultural venue in CT. We went to see a theatre place and were very pleased with the big safe public area around it and the theatre in it.

Exceptional performance at the Artscape. Definitely on par with international standards. The Artscape foyer is undergoing renovations, which was not wonderful. However the show made up for a lack ambiance in the entrance. Hopefully the theater will look stunning again soon!

Hello Roxanne. Dress is a personal thing. Some people VERY casual. I always go smart casual- nice excuse to dress up. Enjoy!

instead of going into the underground parking, you would drive through an overhang of the building, at the back, on street level. She can get out there and the lift is in that lower foyer to the main foyer above.
