Great Shows
Jul 2019
I have seen several shows here the last few years and enjoyed each. Johnny Mathas put on a nice performance in July. This venue has plenty to offer the community, including shows for all ages.

Perfect little venue
Apr 2019
This place is great! There are really no bad seats. The theater isn't huge, so where every you sit you will be able to see the show with no issues!

Great venue!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Over the years I’ve seen everyone from the Violent Femmes to the Northeast Philharmonic Orchestra, Jerry Seinfeld and local high school graduations. There is not a bad seat in the place and the acoustics are excellent. Parking is easy and restaurant/bar choices for before or after the show are pretty good.

Be prepared for your personal information to be given to a time share company by buying a ticket to this venue
Jul 2019
Lyle Lovett was great, the venue was nice, the price fair.

What is not made available when purchasing a ticket is that the Kirby Center provides your personal information for a time share company to contact you to try and sell you a time share. The call tells you how lucky you are, that you have been picked for a weekend stay, etc., etc. for having gone to the Kirby Center. After the first call from the time share I told the time share company to remove my information from their records, I was not interested and not to call again.
Next I called the Kirby Center and was informed, yes indeed, your information is provided to the time share company and that information is provided to you on your ticket. Consequently, you don't know when you purchase the ticket, it is after the ticket arrives in the mail that you are to read the fine print to basically learn that your privacy has been invaded. I informed that Kirby Center represenative that I did not want my information given out to sales companies and the represenative told me they would remove that information.
The second call today from the time share company is the reason why I am on trip advisor writing this review. Clearly my information is still out there because once again it was the time share company telling me how lucky I am for having visited the Kirby Center - at which time I told them that I am not interested, to remove my information from their records and not call back.
Then, again, I called the Kirby Center and wanted to speak with someone in Administration. I was given the voicemail of the director of development where I left my message about how I don't appreciate their selling my information, wanting my personal information off of their database and left my number for a call back.
Absolutely unacceptable practice to be selling their customers information when purchasing a ticket to their venue - without letting their customers know.

Good show, very good acoustics, not a bad seat in the house. The center itself needs more bathrooms on main floor for those who can't walk the stairs.
