Shea's is a really beautiful theatre to see plays and musicals in. I saw Rent there a few years ago and it was an awesome experience.

Striking architecture. Building is in need of some cosmetic refurbishing - velour seating covers are old and matted Slight difficulty with audio during performance. Love there are scattered seats in lobby to sit. Staff helpful. An over abundance of volunteers. Need to find a better way to handle late arrivals. Bought tickets day of performance and was told areas of interest were completely sold out. Not true at all. There was a substantial number of open seats. Would return anytime
