Thoroughly enjoyed Knock Me A Kiss. This is a small intimate theatre and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house but you do need to arrive early as there is no reserved seating. I am already looking forward to the next performance.

The ONLY negative I have about the WBTT is general seating - but, since it is a small venue, there aren't any bad seats - just arrive early. What talent!! This was our third visit and again we were highly entertained. I am so proud this theatre is in Sarasota!!
