I saw this show at St. Olaf several years ago. I recall that Lin-Manuel was very particular about which schools did the performance, and that he expressed great concern that whoever created the show met his expectations for diversity. The show production was a bit...More

Just saw the fabulous "Jesus Christ Superstar." Sat in the balcony, row c with a clear view of the stage. Sound was amazing. Husband loved it too. Then off to Pazzaluna for a snack. Lots of fine dining options around.

We have seen many shows here and even performed in a few. The main stage has great sight lines from nearly everywhere. The seating is comfortable and the lobby space is grand. Restroom lines can be long. The staff is very friendly.
