Was here for a production of the Nutcracker ballet. Delighted to see a full house. The lobby, while small, has beautifully restored artwork. Theatre itself has good sight lines and very nice restoration. However, the seating capacity greatly exceeds what the hallways or restrooms can...More

Watching the taping of "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me" was painful. Seats are much too cramped (at least balcony seating). I have been there previously, on the main floor, an don't recall being cramped.

My wife and I went to see Aladdin. First thing, you may have seen other reviews commenting on the size of the seats. We found them to be fine width-wise. It is true, however, that the knee room is lacking. I'm 5'11 and I kept...More

Well known landmark used for the backstage scenes in Prince's, "Purple Rain." Had a chance to get a glimpse, but locked up tighter than a Revolution Drum.
