The play we saw was excellent but we also truly enjoyed the backstage tour - very inexpensive, informative, and fun.

“An Amazing Company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

We saw "Ragtime," and cried at more than one point in it. As always, the Shaw never disappoints and this show was one of the best we've seen!

Enjoyed an afternoon showing of A Man and Some Women at the Court House Theater. The players were marvelous! The costumes were lovely. Drawn in from start to finish.
