A world class venue for any type of performance. Beautifully designed and executed. Very nice location on the Boise State University campus along the Boise river. Adequate parking in adjacent surface lot and garage. A Boise showpiece and generous gift to the city by the Morrison family. Catch a won't be disappointed. One of Boise's top five Arts locations.

Beautiful place! Very nice people! Always a pleasure to be there. Four of us saw "Jersey Boys." Fun play. Very enjoyable evening. I just wish people would dress a little better.

This is an EXCELLENT venue. There is not a bad seat in the house-- honestly. Tonight we saw Swan Lake, the Ballet (will review separately). This was my first time in the venue and it won't be my last. They don't allow food or drink, other than water, in the actual theatre, or video, photos-- so beware. They sell wine and beer $6-9, cookies, truffles and soda, all at affordable prices. The venue is quite large, full of history, and is the place to go for smaller, more intimate shows (not too small). The stage is very large. The first 1/4 of the stage opens up to see below, which the Boise Philharmonic was playing for the live show and we were able to see them play as well (see photos). They have both elevators and stairs. The parking, for me, was very easy. I got there about 30 minutes before my show and I parked right out front and paid the parking meter. Now, I've read the reviews and tips, and parking is often an issue, so maybe I just lucked out. Will call was super quick without any issues. I like this venue and look forward to seeing other shows.

Attended the Celtic Woman Homecoming Tour. This was my first visit since about 1994. The place has not changed much inside but outside is much, much different. Hard to use the original main entrance unless you're being dropped off and thank God for the Brady parking garage because surface parking is at a premium unless you get there very early. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

Great venue and not a bad seat in the house! Would be great to see some rock/country bands do some accoustic shows here since the sound is great. Definitely worth the ticket no matter what show you decide.
