This theater puts most other theaters in the US (and the world) to shame. The facility is truly remarkable. I only managed to view it from the outside, but next time a performance takes place there...

Beautiful design, unique architecture and peaceful feeling when you are enjoying a good concert. The chairs are not really comfortable and in summer time could be a little hot since there is no air conditioning. Other than that you will enjoy being here.
This building is beautiful and worth the small fee to go in and do a self-tour. My only regret is that we weren't there long enough to see a show. This spot is also the meeting place for many activities.
