We were able to catch a Sunday "Dynamo" show - what a deal - $5! We were very impressed and would most definitely come back to see this or any other production - awesome local improv.

My daugher and I went to the Upfront on Friday. It was their Space Trek show and we laughed our butts off. Very entertaining and family friendly.
