Nice venue. Great for concerts too! Decent size free parking. There is also plenty of street parking as well. Which can be kinda tricky in a residential area.
Classic, structure, one of a kind! Well restored. Exceptional venue. GREAT for concerts. Don't miss it.
cute and fun experience. The play I saw was well acted and fun. Very intimate atmosphere.
Best little theater near the Monterey Peninsula! Don't let the size fool you: the acoustics are up to symphony orchestra performance specs. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful performance there, and were guided to our seats by friendly ushers. The whole place breaths the famous Carmel easygoing feel. It's a compact place but it has plenty of room for a wide range of wonderful artistic experiences. Great place!
Unfortunately, we could not find a security guard in order to help one of their own workers who was being harrassed by a patron who was calling her horrible names. I was going to forcibly remove this man, but there was one more song and she asked me not too. Other than this incident, it was a wonderful experience. The Purple Xperience entertained and the standing room only dance floor was a fantastic new edition!
