“A real theatre experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Been a few times over the years including the current run of Cat on A Hot Tin Roof . Its such a small and intimate venue that you are so close to the actors and that really brings the performances to life. Worth a visit every time and a fantastic way to spend a few hours doing something different.

“Thoroughly enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Be sure to stop at WHAT when you're on the Cape. We had no idea what we were in for and had not expected the caliber of performance that we enjoyed. This is a lovely small theatre where every seat is a good one. We purchased more expensive seats (still a great value) but in retrospect we could have spent less and still been very happy. The set was simple but very cleverly designed and beautifully executed.

“USUALLY GREAT - Not so this time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We love the WHAT on most occasions. We went on Saturday night to beat the oppressive heat. The staff were, as always, accommodating and pleasant, the ambience was lovely, the theater is beautiful (no bad seats).
The play (6 characters in search of an author) was, in a word, awful.

We had bought the cheap seats and are very glad we did.

“Great treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

THis is a great theater. They don'tmake them like this anymore. It is very small and the productions are very professional. I have never been in such an intimate theater and the experience is one that is not often had in this day and age where theaters are really complexes and nothing is live.
