This venue is full of roaches - most likely due to the fact that the place hasn't been properly maintained in years. The roaches have gotten into the purse of one of my designers. They've also been lurking the bathrooms startling my audience members.
But worst of all, the venue owner is horrrendous. He's verbally abusive. He's tempermental. He was close to having a physical altercation with one of my designers.
Also, the venue serves as the owners home. He pees in his office into pails leaving them around. Because of this, the place smells of urine and it's especially irritating as my stage manager had to enter his office every night to turn on the house lights.
Never again will I rent from this venue owner.
