  • It's a very nice facility with a good amount of parking in the vicinity for only $5. I've gone there twice that I recall easily, once to see a play and another to see a concert. The acoustics are good and you can see the faces of the people on the stage well enough to recognize someone you know very well - even from the balcony seats (where I've always sat), but I would recommend bringing binoculars if want to see the expressions of the people better (from the balcony). The rows are tiered so you aren't struggling to see over the head of the person in front of you, which I really appreciate. There are plenty of bathrooms and drinking fountains. They don't have a concession stand - they only allow bottled water into the theaters.
  • Beautiful place to see if you can while visiting Mesa. Elaborate designs and themes for Holidays and Anniversaries of the like. The city lights up after dusk (sundown) and colors come out of nowhere from the artists work on the street side. Go inside and it's a magical abstract universe of random oblique transformations of the ART Worlds Elite. FIND IT AND GO!!!
  • This facility is great! The mix of types and sizes of theaters was an excellent plan. Each theater suits it's particular use very well. The volunteers are usually knowledgeable and always friendly. The lobby is large enough for meeting the cast after performances. Availability of nearby restaurants is limited.
  • Don't waste your money buying tickets on the second to top tier, near the side; the sound was very poor. Also, be careful what groups you get tickets to. We saw the Righteous Brothers and they gave a very very short and poor show. It was 1 hour 20 min. long, and probably a third was talking. The harmony was not good, unfortunately, the age of the main singer made for very compromised voice quality and harmony. The venue should make sure that the singers/groups that they allow to perform here are going to give a decent performance for the high value of the tickets.
  • This is a great piece to visit for concerts. Especially come here for the EVMCO concerts in the winter add spring. There are also many interesting interactive pieces here which include a noise-making pavement and some very interesting chairs which rotate in the most peculiar way. Also, Santa comes to visit at Christmastime! In any case, a great place to take kids.
