The arts center is one of my favorite entertainment go to places all year round. With a smorgasbord of art, music and theater there is always something to see. Generally reasonably priced and easy parking you can't go wrong being entertained for the night.

I;m not sure, sorry. If it's Hammer Hall then I think all seats are good. Have a look at the seating plan on the web...google art centre seating plan and you should see ( TA won't allow websites in answers). Enjoy the show
