Saw Falsettos here last night. I chose a seat in the second row of the mezzanine because I was told by someone who had seen the show previously that the orchestra seats are not elevated much and it would likely be easier for me to see in the mezzanine. My seat was amazing, I could see absolutely everything, however I was extremely uncomfortable the entire two hour and forty minute duration of the show. I am a slender female and only 5'5 and I felt as though my seat was too small. My knees were practically in the back of the person in front of me and I couldn't move an inch without disturbing the people next to me. The theater was also freezing cold and in a pair of jeans with two pairs of leggings underneath I was still shivering with goosebumps and shouldn't have been. Otherwise the theater is beautiful. Falsettos was INCREDIBLE, with a flawless cast.

One of the smaller theatres with very cramped seating and incredibly long bathroom lines for all genders (it's possible people from North Carolina were in town trying out alt gen bathrooms). The mezzanine is extremely steep. Saw the crucible here, which was fantastic.

Amazing decor, good sitting. The balcony row A sits are not as great if you are a short statue, will need to lean in to see the front of the stage

Classic theater although the seats gave me the feel of being on an airplane.

Beautiful theater, good lay out. Wish the seats were elevated more, I had to keep moving my head to see the stage and I saw quite a few others doing the same. Friendly ushers and quick bartender.
