There's not a bad seat in the house! Some great acts come there and the place has character. Parking is free in the parking lot and on the street but costs in the parking deck. There's a lot of other cool stuff nearby too.

Have attended several concerts in past year. The intimacy and sound quality make for a nice concert experience. It could use some TLC, but the "worn" feel is part of the appeal of this neat old theater. Don't expect a lot other than a good...More

A friend and I recently attended a concert at the Kent Stage. The lovely jazz virtuoso Esperanza Spalding. Although the theater is not refurbished (at great expense) like some theaters, the staff were very good, and the music was especially fantastic. There is a full...More
