Had a great time at the closing night of Wait Until Dark! We wanted to do something fun on our last night and we really enjoyed the play and cast. What a pleasant surprise! We will definitely do it again on our next trip!

The cast really shines in this 70s themed musical comedy. I was laughing out loud and singing along. Their enthusiasm and talent made it a joy to watch.
