The acoustics are superior, the seating comfortable and the entire venue is charming. Concerts feel like you are in an intimate home setting and the sound is so superior you feel you could be in a world renowned opera house. Perfect on all fronts.

Enjoyed the Adam Ezra Group here last night. It’s a very small venue. We were told by one of the ushers it’s the old town Hall. All the volunteers and staff were very friendly and proud of their theater. Tour the Katharine Hepburn museum while...More
