A group of ladies saw “Disenchanted” at the small Venice Theatre. We did not stop laughing from the time we arrived until we left. Adult entertainment at its finest. Loved the size of the theatre.

I went to see the John Denver Tribute this week. It was a great performance. The audience was singing along with the performers. It’s a small theater which makes any seat a good seat. I’m looking forward to seeing other productions there.

Yes! There are spots designated for wheelchairs with companion seats next to them. There is an elevator should you want to select balcony seating.
