This playhouse is so small that all the seats are good. Went to see Kalamazoo which was a cute, two person play. Had a few good laughs. I won't spoil the storyline.

Act II continues to have interesting shows with wonderful local talent. Brighton Beach Memoirs was a great production with a great young lead. The new AC/heating system is a big plus also.
