Has an excellent choice of new plays and playwrights for its very excellent company of actors and directors. Good seats everywhere and nice ambience. Saw "Capital" and the company did a fantastic production. Very friendly, helpful staff. Lots of history in building and area.

We saw BUTLER, and loved the performances & the story -- based on history about a Civil War General and a runaway slave who put their wits together to create a legal loophole that ends up freeing 100,000 slaves.
