I’ve visited the Hanger Theatre for concerts produced by Dan Smalls Presents. The venue is small and intimate though a little sterile. We had great seats and I had no complaints about the sound. There is a snack bar but very few places to sit. It was crowded an a little uncomfortable waiting for the doors to open. The Hanger also has a theater company and every season they have interesting selections at least one or two that are kid friendly.

Nice venue to see a smaller show, with pleasant staff and clean accommodations overall. I was there to see a spoken word show put on by DSP. The seats are a bit short on leg room for my liking (especially for a 2+ hour show) and anyone taller than 6' may not be very comfortable here. The theatre also became quite hot and stuff during the show with a lack of attention to proper ventilation and airflow.

Any seat is a good choice. It's a relatively small theatre, but a great venue for sound and sight. The tickets are also reasonably priced.
