This is not where D200 shines. In this type of environment I would pick D7000 (or even D300) over D200 any time. D200 leans too much toward yellow under artificial lighting, and I don't think it is a WB issue. Also, the acuity is not that great either. Under abundant natural light it is a very different story, and D200 holds its own there very well with its beautiful vibrant colors.

This is exactly what I have found. The D7000 is simply amazing in this type of lighting, in bright outdoors like the D200 makes a much nicer image. I do agree with the OP the d200 can be used in low light just keep the ISO low and use fast glass and/or low shutter speeds if that's an option.
