This theater gets Broadway Equity actors. The plays are outstanding. There is a little bar so you can have a drink before the show. Seats are comfortable and have cup holders. Watch a great show in comfort! What a concept

Have had a season subscription and see all plays. Alway enjoy the profession performance. Last year the show I enjoyed the most was 1776. It was very interesting. The set designs are alway beautiful and fit so well with the play.
