Reviews for The Horace Bushnell Memorial Hall Corporation

Rating: 5 stars  

I have seen several shows at The Bushnell over the past year, in both auditoriums. The theatre has always presented entertaining and first-class shows in a comfortable and dignified setting. The ushers and supporting staff are helpful and polite. I recommend The Bushnell to anyone in the region who appreciates high art, beautifully executed.
