The Freedlander theater is small, so the seats are all pretty good. Just saw Anything Goes, which was superb. always a pleasure to come here. Free parking close by.The orchestra is wonderful, too. Nothing like a real live orchestra providing the music for a play!

I know it's not trendy, but keeping the flag flying for Gilbert and Sullivan and other light opera should be applauded in my opinion. This year's OLO Mikado was great fun, nicely adapted for the political season, designed and costumed lavishly and lovingly, and performed...More
