In general Wharton Center in East Lansing, Michigan is a good venue with acceptable acoustics. If you want to pay $5 to park, there is an attached ramp, otherwise good luck finding a spot, as the center is located on the campus at Michigan State University, where parking is hard to find, highly monitored by campus police and not conveniently located. By design, the auditorium itself has no center aisle. If you get to your seat timely, be ready to look at plenty of fannies passing, as shows often do not start on time. In addition, the auditorium is usually on the cool side, so no spaghetti-strap dresses here. The offerings are balanced and the house staff helpful. However, watch out for the box office personnel. Occasionally, errors have been made on my subscription order. This will not be admitted, no apology offfered and one is left wondering if fees are correct. One wants to say, "Lighten up box office."
