Not a bad seat in the house. Staff is a little curt, but they are probably students. Production was excellent and the price was perfect, with a great selection for dining nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The physical attributes of spacious seats and plenty of leg room is much appreciated. The production we saw tonight CHASING MEM’RIES...More

I saw Actually there -- it was an amazing play and performance. The space (the smaller of the two theaters) was perfect. An intimate setting but a large stage giving the actors and directors plenty of options.

Saw "Barbaque" here and laughed through most of it. All of the actors were phenomenal and we really enjoyed the production. The theater was nice and charming. Seats aren't all that comfortable but it didn't ruin the experience.
