Treated my 97 y/o Mom and her date (my husband) to Mark Twain Tonight, with Hal Holbrook. Mom was swept away by the ambience, performance and easy access to their seats on an elevator. They loved it. Parking lot was off limits due to repairs; however, drop -off at front of the Hall was a breeze.

Went to a performance on Valentines Day. The building is beautiful, I was very impressed as we have seen many Broadway productions. Would love to go again and I will!
