“Wonderful, sometimes quirky theater!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Small, intimate theater (almost) in the round, not a bad seat in the house. Many thought-provoking and excellently executed original plays, as well as classic dramas and comedies and occasional musicals. Can be a bit avant-garde and deliciously so. Well known players frequently grace its stage.

“Great Christmas Carol Show!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I went to see the "A Christmas Carol", Really good! All the staff is nice, there's stadium seating, and it's great! Go there if you don't want to see a broadway show but you want to see A show on a regular sat. night or something.

“Great Productions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Even if you aren't a fan of the play being produced, you can appreciate the quality and effort put into each production. Every seat is a good seat. I appreciate the annual Scrooge production, but would enjoy a different holiday show once in awhile.

Small theater where you are close to the stage. Top quality shows for the most part.
