We were in the Barter Annex across the street from the main theater. It was a small, intimate space with excellent seating. The play was contemporary, well done and enjoyable.

This was my first visit to the Barter, a theatre I had heard much about from friends who had gone before me. We went to see, or rather experience, "I'll Never Be Hungry Again." The cast were talented and professional, and provided an evening of great lines and much laughter. Everyone, from the box office staff to the ushers to the actors, strove to please, and did a great job of it.

I've been numerous times and have never seen a bad production at the Barter. We are very lucky to have such a high quality theater in our area.

We always try to take guest to the Barter. It is always outstanding. Q group of us went to see Beauty and the Beast two seasons ago and it was amazing.
