We absolutely love the comedians you bring to Iowa. The exquisite building is like having a comedy festival inside an art museum. In addition, we are happy to pay a yearly contribution and are grateful for the chance to purchase tickets sooner. Thank you for bringing such quality entertainment to Hoyt Sherman Place.

We absolutely love the beauty of this building inside and out. The shows here are always fantastic, no seat is bad! The art is just another wonderful perk of visiting here for shows or concerts, but we have come to love meeting up with old friends again based on the event that we are attending. It’s a great pleasure to have such a beautiful place within our city.

I love being a member of Hoyt Sherman Place! Not only do I feel the need to support the center by being a member, I also volunteer as a usher/ticket checker. I even got my fiancée involved! Hoyt Sherman Place is my favorite venue for concerts or comedy, it is also a great venue for community events. The architecture is beautiful, the grounds are well cared for. People care. Everyone seems to come in with a smile, they are there to enjoy themselves! Like my mother would say, “life is not for misery, it is to be enjoyed!” I enjoy the place and the people. I am glad to be able to help in even a small way.

I love this venue, the organization from checking tickets to seating is top notch, staff is friendly, and quality entertainment that has been booked.

Daniel McNerney

The venue; acoustically perfect. Relaxing. The offerings are inspiring and affordable. A jewel to the music scene in our community.
