“Love this theater!!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We have season tickets to Theatre Squared and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences there. We have been to 6 different productions there and have always been impressed with the quality of the actors and the set. This is a very small theater so all the seats are excellent. We were very happy with the new chairs that have been installed since last season. They are much more comfortable than before. It is nice to have such a quality theater within short driving distance to us without having to go to a large city (we live an hour and a half away).

“Excellent Theatre”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Just started going to T-Squared last season for Next to Normal. It was so outstanding that we bought season tickets this year. Saw the first production already, The Spiritualist. In addition to the wonderful new seats, the production was again excellent. I have played scenes over and over in my head marveling at the quality of the acting. This experience is well worth the modest cost.

“Top-notch theater”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Along with Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville and the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, TheatreSquared is one of the best reasons to live in or visit Northwest Arkansas. If you don't happen to like the first play you see there, try again. For productions run the gamut from rollicking comedies to familiar classics to cutting-edge new drama. Each season includes a variety. I am a season-ticket holder and like the variety, but my favorites are the edgy new dramas from New York. Seeing Next to Normal last spring was one of the best theatrical experiences I've had anywhere, and that includes quite a few on Broadway. I am greatly looking forward to Amy Herzog's 4000 Miles, which was a Pulitzer finalist for 2013.

“TheatreSquared more than local theater.”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have very much enjoyed my 2 seasons as a season ticket holder at TheatreSquared. I have seen 'new' to the stage creations, as well as some wonderful adaptations, such as 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I've read that we will have new, more comfortable seats this year. Due to my renewal of my subscription, my seat is right in front, in the middle. I'm so close to the actors, I could touch them. Wonderful experiences.
