This is a very beautiful theater with Chinese theme. I wouldn't say I enjoyed all the musicals I saw, but occasionally it is a good place to see a musical that interests you. They also have fairly good seats everywhere in the theater.

This is a wonderful theater with a really cool and vintage design. The season is ending but we got a chance to take a look inside while the workers were cleaning out from the last show. This is very cool.

The 5th did an outstanding job with Hunchback. They’ve been a bit hit and miss this year. This was definitely a hit. Catch it if you can.

This is a beautiful theater and the performance of the Hunchback of Notre Dame was really interesting. I enjoyed it very much. They also had two sets of bathrooms which was a plus instead of everyone waiting for one. Very nice theater, really great show!...More

This is one of the more beautiful theatres in the US. I saw “Hunchback of Notre Dame” there over the weekend, and I’m glad I got to see it at this venue.
