The shows are great and the seats comfortable. I doubt that there is a bad seat in the house. Just recently saw The Carpenters Again and Always Patsy Kline which was wonderful.

Love this theater. Great quality actors. Terrific costuming. Great shows. A bit of a drive but well worth it. Organize trips here for my neighborhood. They are wonderfully accommodating. Feels like a neighborly step back in time.
