“Great Small Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We have seen a couple of shows here. Always very good performances with a good cast. Very intimate litle theatre and very reasonable admission prices. Tucked back of the main street. Free street parking the meighborhood. The Circle theatre is rite behind it and it is REALLY a intimate theatre. But also fun.

We really enjoy the theaters at the Golden Bough. Cozy, local, great shows, neat stage and not a bad seat in the house.
