Opening night performance of this intriguing play was a total triumph! Four stunning actresses portrayed four brave women who stood up against the aristocracy and for women's rights during the French Revolution. There's so much more toit than that, but this theater company consistently tackles...More

This is a cool place to go - music, plays, community lectures, off-the-beaten-path films. I've never actually gone to an art exhibit there, but usually some art is on display.

We went to see the one man comedy show "Baby Boomer Baby" and it was our first visit to the center. The size of the space was very intimate so you are close to the stage no matter where you sit. The show was not...More

I have mixed feelings about the Dairy Center but have enjoyed some of the functions I've attended. It's a nice place for local talent to perform a one woman show for instance. But after all of the remodelling, the seats in the theatre are very...More

Basically it's lots of theatres. A big complex with a few bits of art dotted around. A long walk down from Pearl street and a big let down on what I was expecting. Free internet, cafe and Lois though with a mall across the road.More

Hi DP - it's important to note that we have four galleries that are in a constant state of transformation. Sometimes they are filled to the brim with pieces from group exhibitions and sometimes we have exhibitions that are more minimal. This is common practice...More

Recently remodeled, this is a great venue for the arts. I actually wish that it was at least twice the size.
