“Wonderful-to-Excellent Theater”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Highly recommended local troupe. I suggest you look through their calendar yearly - they have a good mix of well established favorites and newer and off-beat selections. Find some that pique your interest and then, if you're flexible about the dates, you can usually find some cheaper nights (some even with General Admission). Seen more than five plays here including Shakespeare and have never been disappointed.

“Variety & Fresh approaches.”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Small and intimate, this theater in the round serves up even old standards in new & innovative ways. Rarely a bad show.

“Live Theater, lively location, beautiful ambiance”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

You are not in New York, but you could be off-Broadway. If you are in Chapel Hill, looking for something to do, check this website to see if they are playing. There is not a bad seat in this small intimate theater. We saw Hal kill Hotspur last weekend as if they were in our laps, (Henry IV) and the swordplay was excellent and the whole play was impressive, accessible, well acted, and beautifully staged. I had heard great things about this company and they were all true. What a gem to have in Chapel Hill. Good restaurants around for before or after too!
