For a smaller venue they do a excellent job with both variety and great shows. We have been going since we moved here in 2002 and really enjoy every show we have seen.

The McCallum is a beautiful building. Their shows are varied. Always in good taste. Barry Manalow is always a sell out. Lucie Arnez is a show stopper for sure. It is large and the people who attend the shows are very friendly.

Saw the Boston Pops there. Excellent facility, seats slightly over 1000, comfortable seating, probably not a bad seat in the house. Wide variety of events, shows and concerts held here. Plenty of parking, valet available. Limited food/drink on site. Recommended.
