Great Venue

Nice intimate theater. No matter where you sit you are close enough to the state. Easy to get to, parking next door. Great shows.

There's not a bad seat in the house. Small, intimate, you really feel like you're part of the performance.

Comedy of errors great show interesting twists. The bad walked in the door 2 minutes late and had to wait to sit while watching on a TV.
