We have gone to 3 plays this summer and all of them have been excellent. On Golden Pond was our favorite, but each one has it's own charm It's a great Saturday afternoon activity and you get two for the price of one.

Not really a bad seat in the house. We saw a two hour show with a 10 minute intermission. They stuck very close to the times listed. We were shown to our seats, which are inside a theater - not outside. We saw "Here Comes...More
