At the theatre today to see Mitch Albom's Hockey production. Very funny and entertaining, and this cozy venue was perfect for this play. We will look for other upcoming productions to see at this venue.

One of the smaller theatres; the experience is intimate and casual. So, definitely no Broadway plays here. We would attend again. Production of Hockey The Musical was fast paced, entertaining. All in all a good experience
