The main musical productions are excellent. The main theater productions are good. The small plays in the adjoining mini theatre are very poorly done, and in bad taste. Best to buy the tickets individually to the well known main productions.

This isn't a club, it's live theatre. There is no age limit, however some plays are less appropriate for children. Check with the box office.

At only 250 seats, there are no bad seats. About halfway up in the center are the most popular.
