This is a nice place. It's downtown, close to all the attractions. We watch Lee Ann Womack in concert. It was great. It don't hold a lot of people, but you can see the stage from almost every seat.

This is a pretty & historic theatre in the center of downtown. We enjoyed the show. Patrons should be aware that the lobby is quite compact and there are long lines for the toilets at intermission. Really enjoyed the concert.

Attended the Ben Sollee show with my wife. It was a great experience. The staff was great, seats were comfortable, and the acoustics were great. I look forward to the next show at The Brown.

We were in row B near center and it was perfect but for the Nutcracker I think I personally would prefer to be a little further back and at more of an elevation.
