We saw the play "A Crack in the Sky" about a Somalian immigrant. The actors were really good and there was basically no bad seat in the theater. The ushers were great. Our tickets were $20 each which I thought was a good price.

We saw Glensheen at the History Theatre. Excellent productioon! Very disturbing story but they did a great job of "lightening" it up by making it a musical!
