Great place to see a play. Saw Old Jews telling Jokes. It runs thru January 3, 2016. A Fun night out for many laughs. Cast was fabulous! Best way to start the New Year! Theater very quaint and comfortable. Not a bad seat anywhere!

The productions are done very well. You feel that you are part of the show. Many productions have gone onto Off Broadway Theater. Easy to get to, safe, and a very gracious staff.

We did not like it. Ok, the performance by the 2 male actors was laudable, but, I sensed, the whole play was more about their abilities than anything else, - so they sang and pranced. It became tiring. The play itself is a blob of...More

This is a great local theater where you can see high quality musical, comedy, and dramatic productions. It is small and intimate but their work is always awesome. It is amazing what the set designers create with the small stage. We have been subscribers for...More
