A perfect evening in the park as long as the weather is good. Lots of laughs and always a great production. If your visiting or a local and you have the time you can't go wrong with these plays.

The play was good, but some plot points were confusing...was it tongue-in-cheek when they referenced the movie Titanic in a scene supposedly taking place in the 80s? Overall, I just felt like I wanted the same kind of wonderful experience I had with Alice in...More
