Liked: I think the performer I was there to see made it the experience that it was, not so much the venue.
Disliked: The fact that the male ushers would allow females to go up to the front of the section I was in and stand in front even though they didn't pay to be up there. Also disappointed in the fact that my husband couldn't go out to smoke during intermission - the man working the door was extremely rude when my husband asked if there was a designated smoking area.
