The ART has never lived up to its potential, and continues to by stuffy while at the same time presenting rather self-conscious and patronizing PC theatre. Staff is patronizing, and after the last production I saw, I think I'm giving up on the place. It's...More

ART generally produces some extraordinary work at a high artistic level. We recently viewed the play Endlings. Very high production values but a very flawed, amateurish play.

The theater was small enough to get info & out of quickly. The Jagged Little Pill Lola’s was outstandingly phenomenal. Casting, Acting, music, creativity was remarkable. The all-gender bathrooms made the intermission bathroom traffic much more efficient than you’d think! I had an amazing time...More

This is an intimate venue- doesn't hold too many people-- and unlike Broadway, there is actually LEG ROOM (which, when you're tall, really matters). Saw "Jagged Little Pill" here and the show was terrific. The venue has a great stage, wonderful lighting, adequate rest rooms,...More

Attended the world premiere of this musical at this theatre at Harvard. The theatre was comfortable and well designed for this performance but the star of the night was the show! Absolutely spectacular performance of this smart and well written musical based on Alannis Morrissette’s...More

Best musical I have ever attended. It was worth the nine hour drive from Ontario. The entire cast was amazing. Great music. Powerful messages. A must see.
