I was completely satisfied with everything on our first visit tonight. It was opening night for 'Middletown' and everything went flawlessly. The actors were extremely talented, the facility is small and intimate, the production was very professional, and there were treats. Recommended.

We have watched many plays at "The Black Box" Theatre over the last 20+ years. The people are nice and the atmosphere is simple, yet accommodating. Some plays are excellent, others ok but we always enjoy it!

I have season tickets and have enjoyed every play I've seen there. It's a small theatre so every seat is good. The current play is hilarious - Greater Tuna.

We just performed at the Black Box Theatre. Ceil and Peter Herman were delightful to work with, and we loved the theater. A wonderful, intimate space, and the Hermans are completely professional and exciting in their approach to theater. Wish we lived in New Mexico...More

Intimate theater setting and plays which variously make you laugh or cry or just challenge your thinking. Peter and Ceil are wonderful supporters of the arts in the city.
