“Great Small Venue...Great Performance”
Review of Theater Wit

Attraction details
Reviewed February 18, 2013

THE VENUE: - A small two(?) theater space with a concession stand that sells cocktails, local candy. The location is not bad as you can park across the street in a bar lot. The theater we were in had about 70 seats and was clean and comfortable. The seats were highly sloped so that every seat is a good one, even for someone who is not tall.

THE PERFORMANCE: We saw "Completeness" which was a play about a relationship between grad students....one who was a CS major and the other who was a Biology major. Each was researching respective problems in their field and one helped the other while exploring all facets and challenges of a young relationship and relating them analogously to science. There were 4 actors and I think 7 parts. All 4 actors were terrific and had to be good to know and understand all the technical lines. Afterward, the director conducted a discussion about the play with audience members who chose to stick around.

This performance was a preview (dress rehearsal) and thus cost about $15 a person. My understanding is that full price for a play in production is probably about $25 per person. They have plays on the schedule all the time and you can join with a membership for a monthly fee and see every performance they have. It would be a great deal if we lived in the area......

Thank Chris S
