Under chandelier lighting and towering ceilings, more than 2,000 freshly upholstered seats cradle bodies in comfort. The gothic accents and ornate curtains of the auditorium complement the marble of the lobby, where audience members gather together to discuss the show or attempt to convince each other that the theater was modeled after their house.
