What a fun evening. The audience really got into their parts, which made it especially fun. The plot was harder to follow at times, so stay on your game! This will not disappoint. Our teenagers loved it too and got into the performance.

Black fedora theater isn't fancy, and quite frankly, it can feel very small...but the interactive show and talented actors make up (and take up) the space. The audience is part of the show, and volunteers can even have roles, which are especially funny since the...More
