We went here for about the 5th time and always enjoy it. Park next door and you do not have to worry about safety. The show started promptly at 7:30 and finished about 9:30. Very entertaining.

It has been awhile since we have been to this theater. It was as we remembered it, intimate, good seating, and quality productions. The music was very well done and we had a great time.

The theater is small so all seats are excellent. Last time there we were on the front row which might have been just a little close. I like rows 2-3. Keep in mind that there are only 6-7 rows. Enjoy.
