Went with friends to see Nunsense A-men and was wonderfully entertained for 2 hours. The actors were professional and hilarious. We plan to sign up for next year's season.

Professional actors, musicians, and stage crew put on really professional shows--there is little else to say. The ambiance in the lobby is great, with a professional musician entertaining before each show. Seating is very comfortable. Everything about this theater is first rate!
