Saw a play at the Phoenix theatre that was well-done. The venue, however, is not what one would expect given the ticket price. The chairs are temporary, the space less than accessible for the many older patrons, and the food options limited. I was recently...More

There was a mix up with the performance and the ticket manager went out of his way to help us. He found two tickets to the afternoon performance for us and West Side Story was an incredible performance. We will definitely return to this venue.

Avenue Q was AMAZING, the theater is quaint without a bad seat! That being said, the bartenders left A LOT to be desired. Unfortunately it took about 10 minutes to even get one of them to notice our group, and he was clearly irritated that...More

We went to see "Avenue Q" at the Phoenix Theater and were overjoyed at the production, the seating, and the entire venue. Many of the actors were Equity, which makes a big difference as their acting abilities shine through. The prices were quite affordable, too,...More
