I always enjoy visiting the ASF. It’s a nice place to see great musicals, dramas and the like in a comfortable setting. I’ve come before with my husband, or the kiddos or even for a theatrical experience with a friend and have never been disappointed.

I wore casual clothes. Not blue jeans but nice pants and blouse. The men didn't wear coat and tie. Some people were dressed up and some were not. I did not feel out of place not being dressed up. Hope this helps!
