My husband has attended the play 3 times and it was the 5th time that I saw the play. We have brought someone each time to share the play with. (I have cried every time) We attended the concert on Fril.... More

We saw the musical "Josiah For President" at the Blue Gate last night. It is a wonderful show. Acting was superb and very strong vocals from all of the cast. Definitely recommend seeing this show.

This is a "do not miss" experience if you are in the area. The storyline is very pertinent to our time and political situation. The musical is humorous and yet has a profound message. A top rate performance for this time of venue. When I am back in the area, I will be checking out was is being performed.

We enjoyed the day immensely as well as the dinner at the Blue Gate restaurant. One thing really stood out: my husband left his Blue Tooth for his cell phone on one... More

This is a comfortable place that attracts a lot of top tier acts. The location offers wonderful dinner/show packages. Makes Shipshewana even more of a destination.

Saw Josiah for President which was well acted, great music and enjoyable. The theater is small, comfortable and what would be considered an intimate interaction with the audience. Would definitely attend another performance at this theater

We saw "Josiah for President". It was very well done. The music was terrific. The theater was clean and comfortable. We can't wait to go back in September for the next play.
