Swash buckling, loud, funny at times, good costumes, but boring backdrop and the play seemed to drag on. Actors mixed the old with modern day vocabulary including use of some props (red squeeze ball was funny at first, but over used during the play). Interesting...More

I have attended a number of Vertigo's productions and never been disappointed. The latest was Wait Until Dark. I was the woman whose hands flew in front of her face accompanied by the startled gasps of the audience during a dark, nail biting scene.

The plays are usually very good, and The Hollow is exceptionally so. We usually go to the Director's night, which is general seating. Go early to these if you want good seats together. We ended up in the back row, where the view was fine,...More

The Vertigo Theatre mystery series has become a staple for my wife and I over the last 2 years. They have a series of 5 shows that run for several weeks each from September to May. The performances and stage are usually very atmospheric. Often...More
