  • I've only been here once but its a great venue for the arts. I loved it!
  • Came yo see a friend perform Was 35 minutes late due to personal reasons Upon arrival was denied entry since they have a no late seating policy No where in the disclaimer did I find such policy Please make sure to fix that please If I knew that policy was in place I would not even attempt to make it in make it clear on your tickets of such things lol Also no refunds so yeah Will never come here again
  • Wonderful dance program offered here and the dance teachers are very friendly.
  • The new performance space and reception hall are spacious and comfortable. The Boe frequently shows interesting films, occasionally with discussions with the filmmaker(s) following.
  • I have been here a few times now and each time was a different theater and felt like a great venue for the show.
