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.

A lovely intimate venue. We have enjoyed both concerts and live theater here. I have literally never been to a bad show here.

Really cute. Love the intimacy. Just the seats are too small for a guy my size. Excellent production and great location
