Very nice historical theatre with quality local plays. Seats are very close together with little legroom.

Broadway in Birmingham! Nothing second rate about this theater that's cranking out Broadway quality shows. Sets, costumes, sound, acting, choreography...all rival the theaters on Broadway in a more intimate setting. Opened in 1927, the historical significance of this southern Belle warrants an encounter. You will...More
