We saw Book of Mormon here and the venue is very nice. We had balcony seats. The only part that sucks is there isn’t a lot of leg room unless you have a seat behind railing. I am 5’0” and there wasn’t much leg room...More

Beautiful venue-art deco, so not as ornate as some other older theatres, but charming in its own right. We went to see Charlie Parr and Tedeschi Trucks and the acoustics were great, and I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. They...More

This is a old theater with interesting carpet. We sat in the balcony. The view and sound were great from our location!

I don't know much about the history of this theater, but I'm going to do some research because I was fascinated by the magnificence of it. Today's large auditoriums just can't compare to the grandiosity of this building. It was a trip back in time...More

The Adler is a very nice historic theater with comfortable seating and not a bad place to sit in the entire place. The seats are pretty close in front of you but not a huge deal. This place would be even better if it offered...More

We had main floor seating, very close. It was great! Excellent venue for the Home Free vocal band. The building seats a large number of people. There is both main floor and balcony. Sometimes being close is a disadvantage but not so in this theater!

if there is food it will be served in one of the adjacent halls. I did not seek out food; but, it is obvious it is not a big part of the the pre-performance ritual. There are decent places nearby.
