We recently went to see Paradise Blue. The play was amazing. The theatre was great- every seat would give you a view of the stage. The staff were friendly. Would definitely come back.

Wonderful acting and great set designs . Unfortunately the play we saw was not particularly good. Artistic director in our opinion blew this one , but to be fair this place is a gem
