Quality: music, voices and production! Usually a group of 6 (3 vocalist), piano, drums & bass. Productions have a musical theme that includes a creative and (dry) humorous introduction of each piece of music by the pianist.

The theater is small so all seats are excellent. Last time there we were on the front row which might have been just a little close. I like rows 2-3. Keep in mind that there are only 6-7 rows. Enjoy.
