I would say "To be" there is the best decision you could make. This Shakespeare Playhouse has everything going for it. The location is right across from Emory University Hospital Midtown which has ample parking at night in their parking garage. The cost is $5. The doors open 75 minutes before the play begins and dinner can be purchased. We get there a bit earlier than that to stand in line because the seating is first come first served. You purchase a ticket (there or online) to one of three sections: main floor, boxseats or balcony. The main floor has the more expensive tickets but you have more room to move. We tried the boxseats (second in expense) this last time and I did find the area limited for movement. Once the play begins everyone settles in and the personal space intrusion is not noticed. I have not tried the balcony (least expensive) because it is further limited in space and tabletop and my husband is 6'2". This is a dinner theater so the food must be mentioned. They cater the food in. The menu has regular items and they have specials that change monthly. We are vegetarians so the menu is limited but they have enough items to be completely satisfied. The bread basket is my favorite (a variety of baguette, hard roll, banana bread or cranberry bread) and the soups are delicious. There is an intermission where dessert and drink is offered. The play actors and actresses are amazing. They are so talented and seem to be as a family. Afterwards they stand by to shake your hand with kind greetings. My husband and I have seen five plays there so far. We travel down from Chattanooga, Tennessee and make it a special night. We have not been disappointed. They also open their doors on Thursday mornings to local junior high and high schools. I took my granddaughter (15 years old) and she thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fun to see the children laughing at Shakespeare's humor (Oh, I digress.)
