I had a training at this theater and enjoyed it. Nice little theatre for smaller productions Had the feel of a old Broadway theatre. When I went it was super cold so you may want to bring a light sweater just in case. Prepare ahead of time and get there early because you may have to walk a while from parking spot. Depending on which door you go in to Spirit Square, it may take you a couple of minutes to locate the theater.

A great venue. Very personal and up close. Situated close to the heart of uptown Charlotte with easy access to dining and other attractions of the city. Worth a visit to Uptown Elevation church services on Sundays. Not a bad seat in the house except behind some of the structural pillars. Definitely alot of flavor.

Beautiful facility but if you are a bigger person the seats are very uncomfortable. Makes it hard to enjoy the show. The seats are smaller than any arena I have visited.

Funky, intimate, colorful theatre in former church. Nothing beats the unique experience of enjoying a Drag Queen show along with adult beverages for purchase on site

Very enjoyable. Small seats but that's to be expected. Great acoustics and staff
