First off, as of this writing, the address needs to be updated for this venue to 4660 Bauer Farm Dr. Lawrence, KS 66049. Theater Lawrence moved out of the old church location almost 3 years ago... which had been somewhat concerning to me, because a...More

Very cute production. Loved the theater in the round concept, very Shakespearian. felt a little bit like a HS auditoriu outside. I think they could have done more to make it feel more like a real theater. That was the only downside.

I just saw "Ragtime" at this new theater, and it was wonderful. The setting was very intimate; you won't find a bad seat. The second floor seating is easily accessible by the elevators or stairs. The interior lobby area was very new and modern, had...More
