I attended A Few Good Men on March 12 and was so glad to have done so, especially in view of the close down of all theatre venues since then due to Covid19. It was an exceptionally good performance, one I had been wondering about since I had seen the Feb 1 screening, with all of its different settings. The staging was effective and provided a real sense of the different places, with subtle rearranging of the minimal set pieces. The actors were spectacular, and made it seem we were really in a court, or wherever the action was taking place. The emotion of the ending was as effective as the result produced by the film. All in all, a wonderful afternoon of very worthwhile theatre. On the way home my friend and I discussed the merits of this piece of theatre, and decided that A Few Good Men, or Enemy of the People, or A Man for All Seasons should be required study for young people, to gives meaningful examples of integrity, and the price we pay in society when we fail to recognize its importance.

I thought the play was very well done and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. It was a reasonable time, approximately three (3) hours long with an intermission. We had balcony seats, front row. The legroom could have been a bit more, at 5' 6" tall I did alright but my friend at almost 6' was a bit cramped. Overall, a great show and I love the establishment and will go to other productions there.

We have been active supporters for many years and have always enjoyed their productions. However, A Few Good Men rates as absolutely THE BEST performance we have attended and reset the bar to the maximum. Every aspect of the play exceeded our expectations from the stage management, role assignment and the performance of the individual performers. Every aspect was utterly fantastic. Congratulations!!!!!! Anyone reading this must go and enjoy this show.

This lovely theater has done it again. The show is a bit longer than the usual presentations and lasts about two and a half hours. The cast delivers a stand out performance. The story is good and takes place in a courtroom mainly populated by military personnel. The set is amazing and the cast includes many minority types, who do an impressive job bringing their characters to life.
