We went to see the band Kansas and enjoyed the performance enormously. The acoustics were outstanding. The band, as expected, was crazy good. The seats were comfortable. We were slightly surprised that the seats were so strangely arranged, though. There was not enough vertical difference...More

Saw John Waters Christmas here; the venue was intimate and generally comfortable. Not a huge amount of legroom, but such is how things are at places like this.

Went to see Paco Pena's Flamenco Dance Company at Berklee. Fantastic music, superb dancing. I've never been disappointed by a performance here. The seats are comfortable, as an added bonus.
