My husband I first came here a couple of years ago for a play. We came again last month for their improv festival. This theater does independent and offbeat productions. The atmosphere adds to that hipster feel and is a worthy member of the OTR scene.

A cool, edgy theater in a cool, edgy neighborhood (OTR). Offers lots of different shows, improv comedy, and an amazing Fringe Festival in the early summer. Has a bar inside, but it is within walking distance to many areas bars and restaurants. Street parking available or a parking garage directly across the street.

We went to a one-man concert show in the basement theatre. It was fun and interesting. Important tip is to get there early if you want a seat with clear sightline of the stage.

There are about 50 fold-up chairs and about four feet from the stage. The actors do a great job. Very edgey content. Its not located in the best of areas but parking garage is next door.
