Very professional performance with tears and laughter wrapped up in another top notch musical at the Blue Gate Theater. Dinner and a show is not only economical but the best way to share the experience.

Both were very good. It was a bit chilly in the theater but the actors were all great. The buffet was very good and the food was all hot and fresh. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive

We attended a performance of Home Game and thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was inspiring, the acting and singing superb. Although not usually a fan of musicals, this one kept my interest throughout the whole show. The theater is not large. We had front row seats off to the side, but I think most seats would give a decent view... More

I brought my mom with me to see the play. We both enjoyed ourselves very much. This was the second play that we have seen. The value is great. We are already checking out dates to see another play.
