Didn't know what to expect from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but was enthralled by the mix of great acting and technology. Dialogue intense and none of the actors missed a beat. Very impressive!

What a beautiful theater that quietly sits alongside the John & Mable Ringling museum. Take a beak from the sun and beaches and catch a performance at this beautiful theater. Very comfortable seating and great sound.

This was in a smaller Cook Theater inside the Asolo Building. An 80 minute show without intermission. A well performed play that kept you attention from start to finish. I recommend it as a great night of entertainment.
