There are several plays scheduled throughout the year. However, you can also take a guided tour through the gorgeous building. The theatre is also within a walking distance from some really good restaurants, museums and other attractions.

Nice building but it looks a thousand others I’ve seen before. Snap a quick pic and move on. That is all.
