Horrible venue

  • No, I would not go back!

This venue combines a small stage with way too many seats too far back. On top of that, if you buy one of the more expensive tickets through their website, the system will automatically - and without any warning whatsoever - assign you a seat in a different, farther away section if the section you chose is not available. This happened to me and the ticket office not only refused to take care of the problem, but was unbelievably rude during the process. Bottom line, do NOT buy tickets through their website, and be warned that unless you are in the front, the seating is compressed to the point where you won't enjoy the show.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
