“Best Play and Great Food”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We booked the play - Half Stitched which runs to December. It was an amazing production and very enjoyable. You cry and laugh as you go through the play which is very well done. The play is based on a book by Wanda Brunstetter which writes many Amish books. The Blue Gates food is superb.

Reviewed August 26, 2012

We saw the new Half Stitched play on August 25th at 1:00 pm We enjoyed and felt that it was extremely well done. The characters were so great - loved RUBY LEE and STUART - they were both awesome. Would definitely recommend.

“The Confession”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Musical theater well performed and very entertaining. The play depicts the Amish way of life contrasted to that of most of society. The singing was excellent, costumes beautifully coordinated to the story line. Lines were delivered with clear diction, and the pathos brought a few tears, very believable life events. Well done and deserving of the standing ovation.
